“The Show” (Vineyard Community Church, Bermondsey, 21 July 1991)

This post will only be of interest to people who were at Vineyard Community Church, Bermondsey, London, in 1991. So the rest of you shouldn’t feel embarrassed about leaving now.

We put on a variety show on 21 July 1991. When I was cleaning out some old junk (which I do occasionally do) I found some of the paperwork. So I scanned it, and here it is for those half-dozen people who might care.

The first official confirmation, sent by the producer (who is now my wife):

Invitation to participate (6 July 1991)

The provisional programme, together with instructions for the performers.

The front cover of the programme. Back in those days, it was all handwriting and photocopiers: not many people owned a printer, and if they did it was likely a dot-matrix printer.

    Wow, what an interesting document. Interesting in many ways.
    1. This I believe was one of my first events I went to(or was it dragged to!!) at Vineyard.
    2. It was before all those skiing trips
    3. All the girls on here all have there maiden names with the exception of Mrs Vaughan who had just got married.

    Thank you for this. Brought back memories’
