Drove to South Tottenham and reached at the grans Victorian edifice of Woodberry Down, Baptist Church. Prayer meeting, mainly Caribbean ladies before the service. Worship time and I was handed a tambourine (mine is banned at IPC0.

Went well and was followed by a birthday lunch for a 99 year old lady member. Caribbean food including goat stew. IPC evening service, Paul Levy excellent on Num 34. There is no holy land for the earth is the Lord's. Pleased to see two of my fellow elders who have undergone surgery are now back worshipping with us.
