Nigerian ladies led members of Sunday's overflow congregation at Nigerian Sunday at St Barnabas Church in Shoreline, singing in their native language, accompanied by drummers.

Almost 100 Nigerians attended the service, making this the largest such event in St. Barnabas history. St. Barnabas has about 20-25 Nigerians who attend regularly, so members were delighted with the outreach.

This was a true celebration, which lasted almost 30 minutes!

Drummers and their African drums provided a backbeat for the singing - the combination produced great sound and rhythm.
