On the weekend 14 to 16 March 2014, 21 of us went to visit our partner church at Middelkerke, near Ostende in Belgium. We traveled by ferry, Dover to Dunkirk, and from there it was an easy drive to Middelkerke. What a welcome we received, and with a great meal! On Saturday we visited Poperinghe, to see the Headquarters of TOC H, where soldiers were able to go for a break from the frontline in World War One. We went on to Ypres, so this was quite appropriate in view of this year's centenary celebrations. We slept overnight at the church centre, joined in worship together on Sunday, then drove back to Dunkirk and the ferry to England. A great weekend!
