Keith Underhill: May 2016
The GAP travelling meal programme for this year was well and truly launched at Alton methodist Church with breakfast on Saturday 30th April.
Around 70 people from across all the GAP Churches (as well as Bishop Joseph and Revd Raymond from Karamoja) enjoyed a sumptuous meal together. With cereals and fruit juice to start, followed by the option of a Continental or cooked breakfast nobody left hungry!
It was also a great opportunity to catch up with one another and to enjoy being in each others company
Our grateful thanks go to Christine Allan and her team (Helen, Jill, Carol, Olive and David)
Around £120 was raised for the work of our Anna Chaplains.
