St John the Devine Thanksgiving Service and Celebration of Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary of Independence – Sunday 5 August 2012

With well loved hymns and those broad smiles of welcome testimony to the phrase `Out of many – one people’ the congregation at St John the Devine came together in glorious celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Jamaican Independence. 

The high vaulted church echoed to everything that was Jamaica from dress style to floral display, from elaborate hats to the hastily unfurling of flags that were carried with unquestionable pride to the altar.  

Thank you so much for making it such a special occasion for us all to experience in a borough not short of enterprise or slow to express an alleluia with joyful conviction.
