On Saturday 3 June, young members of the congregation of St John’s Izmir and volunteers of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) went on a day trip to the wonderful ancient sites of Pergamum and Aigai, led by Chaplain James Buxton.

The picture shows the group at the entrance to the gymnasium at Aigai. The five YWAM volunteers were in Izmir for a month, during which they joined St John’s congregation for worship, and gave of their time to do a fantastic spring clean of the church and re-paint the church railings. We loved having them with us and wish them well as they return to their base in the Netherlands.
