Drive-in films bring fun to local families
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.
The church also held open air meetings on the village green in place of services during the summer. Advance booking was requested, and Pastor Hugo admitted to having prayed for good weather, so up to 150 people came to sing and praise in the sunshine.
