Barrie is serving another year as Churchwarden at St Michael-le-Belfrey. But the main event of the year was a Jubilee celebration marking 50 years since David Watson came to York. He came as a curate at the soon to be redundant St Cuthbert’s Church. His remarkable ministry not only kept the church open but grew the congregation so large they had to be found a larger home at St Michael-le-Belfrey next to York Minster.
So we gave thanks for what he started and continues to this day.
Barrie was involved in running a Creative Arts venue and made a short digital story to show how new media can be used to tell personal faith stories. Click to watch.
We still belong to two midweek church groups called Belfrey Groups. Most people only belong to one, but one is small and would not continue if we left, the other is a bit maverick and won’t leave us!
