IT WAS a good day for the thousands of Anglicans who descended on the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex to be part of the church’s annual diocesan service yesterday.
The faithful sat unflinchingly through the near four-hour service led by Bishop Dr John Holder and sermonised by visiting Anglican Bishop from the diocese of Toronto, Barbadian-born Peter Fenty.

Scores of congregants also took the opportunity to take communion.
