We marked this special occasion with a weekend of celebration from Friday November 12 -Sunday 14 November. In addition to our Jubilee Events, we celebrated the life and work of our late rector, Worth Campbell, who passed away 7 September, 2004. A memorial service was held 13 November on Worth's behalf. Eighty three members (including some of our founding members) came together in good cheer for an elegant Silver Jubilee Dinner that raised 10,000 for our Youth Outreach Project Fund.
Friday 12 November All Saints' hosted an organ recital by Mr. Hywel Duck who performed: "Presenting the Chorale Prelude" along with Ms. Anne de Graeve's contribution of "Some Lighter Entertainment on the Organ."
We topped our weekend off with a special Silver Jubilee Festival Eucharist with preacher and celebrant the Rt Revd Pierre Whalon, Bishop in Charge, Convocation of American Churches in Europe presiding over the service.
