The Anniversary weekend of activities culminates in a worship experience on Sunday, 28th September starting at 10:55am. In the spirit of community St. Paul will salute the Butterfield Family for modeling good corporate citizenship through their generous donation to and support of the North Village Community Club Education Centre and their many years of charitable support to Bermuda.

The Executive, members and friends of North Village will also be in attendance as we recognize the Club’s commitment to empowering young people through education and sport.

The theme for this anniversary is “Becoming, Living Stones” [Josh. 4:1-7 ; 1Peter 2:4-5] and will feature the preached word from Rev. Howard H.L. Dill, pastor of Allen Temple AME Church, Somerset.

Pastor of St. Paul, Rev. Nicholas Tweed said: “This weekend is an opportunity not to be missed. The Greater Allen Music team is much sought after throughout the US and we encourage everyone to take advantage of their presence in Bermuda.

“Through music and in recognizing these community-minded individuals St. Paul continues to be a community church where we welcome everyone and where we care for the whole person.”
