Harvest Weekend and 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Saturday 29th September saw Hurst Choral Group arrange a special concert for the Harvest Weekend at Waterloo at which they began by singing a rewritten version of the Abba Song ‘Waterloo’, which made reference to this year being the 50th Anniversary of the Church. 

The afternoon continued with items such as ‘What a Wonderful World’, ‘Perhaps Love’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’, where soloists Colin Carton, Glenys Hyde and David Hanlon shared their talent. 

One of the highlights was the song ‘Combine Harvester’, but as the Wurzels weren’t available,  members of the Choral Group donned hats and hoes for an authentic performance (see photo). 

Thanks were expressed to everyone involved in arranging the concert and providing the Afternoon Tea . 

This event was a wonderful example of the way in which the members of Hurst and Waterloo Methodist Churches are working together.

The weekend continued on Sunday 30th September, with shared worship between the two churches led by former minister,  Rev Kim Ratcliffe,
