Singing and food were the order of the day as members of Carlton Methodist celebrated the Chapel's anniversary on Sunday 11 June.
Revd Andrew Robinson led the service giving thanks for over 200 years of faithful witness and worship in Carlton-in-Cleveland.
After the service, the food was served in the church hall to avoid any unwanted downpours. Malcolm ably managed the BBQ, which was in the shelter of the hall doorway.
Alongside the food there was entertainment from an a cappella group of four singers. The style was appropriate to the occasion as a capella means 'in the style of the chapel'. There was more than one connection with the chapel as one of the singers was a member of Carlton Methodist. The group sang a wide variety of music from spirituals to pop songs.
The event was well supported and was a perfect mix of food, fun and fellowship.
