The United Reformed Church in Sherwood, Nottingham, was full for the The service of Thanksgiving for the Ministry of Terry Oakley, our moderator who retires this summer.
Held on the afternoon of Saturday 9th July, people had travelled the length and breadth of the country to acknowledge not just Terry's time as Moderator, but the whole of his long and varied career.
Many people from this story were involved in the service, bringing their own particular recollections, reading bible passages, or leading prayers.
Music was led bt the Friary Music group.

as presented in the order of service,
interspersed with photographs
