"I have a vision", said Pastor David Catarino.
This was more than 2 years ago when Pastor David shared a vision he had with some of the other local ministers here in West Norwood.
The outcome of that vision is "Oh Happy Day", an annual festival put on in the grounds of St Luke's Church for the whole community..
This was our third year, and once again there was live music, free burgers and lemonade, stalls for health & beauty, have your photo taken with an OHD frame, and kids could get their face painted, jump around on the bouncy castle or in the ball pool.
Chatsworth had a stall for children's activities and were joined by members of Iglesia Bautista de Londres. It was hot! 90 degrees in the afternoon, and there was a certain football match being played...
But, we were joined by families and people out for the afternoon, and we had some good conversations and fun eating ice creams, making bracelets and colourful bands.
The theme this year was that if life you gives you lemons, Jesus makes lemonade!
A number of people were on the stage sharing their testimonies, including a visiting church group from the States.
There are videos of some of the testimonies, some of the dancing and choirs on the Norwood Oh Happy Day facebook page.
