One of many creative ways churches have dealt with government restrictions on public meetings has been to offer drive-in events.

Yapton Free Church in West Sussex was no exception; church members hosted two free movie evenings in September, held in a privately owned local field.

For the first evening, the children’s film ‘Despicable me’ was shown and the second was a Christian film, ‘Truth’, after which Pastor Hugo van Driel shared Gospel truths with the audience.

Both evenings were well attended and people responded positively to the ‘Truth’ film.
