An afternoon of worship, thanksgiving and praise Bishop Auckland Fellowship of Christian Churches invite you to an afternoon of worship, thanksgiving and praise. Sited in the Arrivals Court (outside St. Peter’s Chapel) in the grounds of historic Auckland Castle, we will gather to celebrate the service for seventy years of our queen. Bring along family and friends… your own outdoor chairs (or picnic rugs if you wish to be on the grass.) Live music will be provided by Ichthus. More information and the service details will follow onwww.believeinbishop.org
