Church Anniversary Weekend, 27-28 June 2015

We were really pleased to welcome back Jean Simmonds and Michael Simmonds for this year's anniversary weekend with Jean, our previous minister, leading both services on the Sunday.

This year the anniversary happily coincided with our turn to host the GAP (Greater Alton Project) travelling meal. So instead of the traditional coffee morning a lunch was enjoyed by around 60 people, including Jean and Michael and people from several GAP churches. The food was excellent and there was a good buzz of chatter around the tables. Not only was the event enjoyable but it raised over £120 for GAP work. Special thanks go to Christine Allan and Jill Whittingham who organised the catering.

On Sunday Jean gave us plenty to think about, reminding us that however many anniversaries this church may have had, Jesus has been with us and all his church throughout and is still here with us. She also discussed what it means to be a friend of Jesus and that it's a two way thing.

To 'put the icing on the weekend cake' we did have a real celebration cake which was enjoyed by the congregation with coffee after the services. It was delicious and our thanks go to Carol Woodruffe for making and icing it.
