This event was held on Kingston Field beginning at 10am. Organised by Woodbrige Quay Church with the support of St John’s and the other churches, this has become an annual event since the first BFDO in 2016. Each year seems to be be bigger and better than the last! There were activities and stalls for everyone, bouncy castles and food. There was an opportunity to worship every hour led by musicians from St John’s this year and Doug Waller, minister of Quay Church. John Hardwick gave the message with help from Charlie the monkey and his many circus tricks.
We met on the Woodbridge river wall by The Bandstand at sunrise. This year sunrise was at 5.46am so the service began at 5.30am!
The worship was led by Woodbridge Salvation Army and the musicians of the Woodbridge and Leiston Corps. This was followed by refreshments in the Deben Yacht Club. Many thanks to the members of the Deben Yacht Club for allowing the use of their wonderful facilites. The Woodbridge River Wall is indeed a wonderful location. Especially on Easter Morning.
