Peniel Church in Brentwood has some competition, albeit more light-hearted, for the title of wackiest church in Essex, from nearby St George’s Anglican church. On 23rd April they are holding a special service for St George’s Day, at which
the vicar will urge his flock to fight against dragons and rescue the helpless.
“… We are encouraging people to turn up wearing a red rose. …
“Everyone is welcome – dragons and chargers may be left in Larkins Field in Ongar Road (by kind permission of the council).”
Let’s hope there isn’t any trouble between these dragons and any related beasts which might be hanging around Peniel Church, which is just off the Ongar Road.
