Elstree & Borehamwood's Christian Council visits Offenburg
Members of the Elstree & Borehamwood Christian Council took a trip overseas to the village’s twin town in Germany.
Ten people from the council visited their counterparts in Offenburg, near the Black Forest, last week.
During the trip, they took part in the baptism of one of their hosts - Anne Fischer - who was inspired to join the church after visiting St Michael’s church in Brook Road, Borehamwood.
They were also given a tour of a school museum, which was filled with objects found in schools 50 years ago, which featured a lively and funny demonstration of what it was like to be a pupil there.
Before they went home, they had a tour of the town and its main Catholic church, and learnt some of the history about the buildings.
