Friends from Methodist Churches across the North east met for a day of worship, fellowship and teaching at Chester-le-Street Methodist Church, on Saturday 15th October. This was ECG North East (Equipping, Calling, Going). It was an amazing event with people travelling from North Yorkshire and Northumberland to participate. The theme for the day was Authentic Love. The uplifting worship was led by the young people and a challenging bible study led by Alison Wilkinson. This was Methodism at its finest,a reminder of who we are and what we are about, the greatness of our God and the immensity of his grace.
