Description

Photograph by Dennis Morris entitled 'Catching the Spirit', taken at the Shiloh Pentecostal Church.

Religion and the church play a major part in the Caribbean community. Shiloh Pentecostal Church in Ashwin Road off Dalston Lane was the first church owned by the local Black community. Young and old dressed in their best clothes for the Sunday services.

“Pentecostal services were completely different from Church of England services. Occasionally members would catch the spirit of the almighty, as they say, and fall to the floor trembling.” - Dennis Morris
