Tolpuddle Festival Service
The annual Tolpuddle Festival Service will take place at 5pm on 21st July in the Methodist Chapel, Tolpuddle. The preacher this year is the incoming President of the Methodist Conference, Revd. Dr. Barbara Glasson, who is known especially for her ministry with the 'Bread Church' in Liverpool. We are honoured to be one of her first engagements after becoming President.

This service takes the place of Sunday evening worship at UCD on that day. The Chapel is at the eastern end of Tolpuddle village and can be reached from the east, Tolpuddle Ball junction, during the Festival weekend. Roadside parking should be possible from mid-afternoon.
