November 2018: 25th Anniversary Grace
Grace began on Sunday 7th November 1993, with a service called ‘Grace’ and Dave Tomlinson as guest speaker. We can't quite believe that was a quarter of a century ago. The evening revolved around a celebratory meal, with plenty of stuff to bring back memories, and also looking to the future - Grace 50th in 2043?
It was great to be joined by many old friends and members. Matt and friends provided the soundtrack. There was a timeline with flyers along the floor. There was Grace memorabilia. We attempted to recreate the old 'stack of TVs' with modern flat screens. Lynda made a birthday cake. The event ran until midnight or so.

A walk around the space at about 11pm. The meal is over and some people have gone.
Grace XXV zine
We have created a 64-page full colour zine to mark 25 years of Grace - it grew into a small book really. But it could have been two or three times as big!
