The Unity Service was led by the Vicar of Christ Church, Rev. Brian McConckey. It took the form of a Songs of Praise where one member from each congregation (pictured) chose a hymn and explained the spiritual significance of that hymn to the folk gathered in the church, then we all sang it.Octave of prayer
