The four main churches of Pocklington united recently to enjoy an annual service.
Pocklington’s All Saints’, St Mary and St Joseph, Methodist and Christian Fellowship churches came together for a Service of Christian Unity at the Methodist Church on Chapmangate. This year was the turn of Pocklington Christian Fellowship Church to lead the event and organise the speaker.
The speaker was David Spademan, an Assembly of God (AoG) Minister and the Managing Chaplain of HMP Onley. David served as minister of the AoG church in Rugby before he became the senior chaplain at the prison.
He grew up in Pocklington and attended Pocklington Infant School and Woldgate School. His brother, Pastor Alan Spademan, of Pocklington Christian Fellowship Church, said: “All the feedback has been very positive. It was good.
“All four churches were involved. There were bible readings and prayers.
“Each church takes responsibility for organising it and it was our turn this year.”
The theme of this year’s service was ‘Has Christ been divided?’ The Service of Christian Unity is replicated all around the world.
