So how can you tell the difference then between Methodists and Church of England people then if you were all in the same Church?
From my experience, the Methodists are the first to stand up and the first to sit down, are the noisiest, and do not quell their sense of humour!

Happy 125th Birthday.
I see we are privileged to the pictures if using an iPhone or iPad.
Like the birthday cake one, the church, and the music.
125 years is a long time, good luck with their celebrations.
