Venue: Dudley College

Ignite is the service where all the churches of the Dudley and Netherton circuit join with the Vale of Stour circuit to celebrate the power of God's Spirit to move us to worship, love and evangelism,

This year it took place on Aldersgate Sunday, when we celebrate the hearts of John and Charles Wesley being "strangely warmed."


We all gathered at Dudley College for 10:30am where we were led in worship by Saltmine Christian drama company who challenged us to board the train on God's calling.
