What a wonderful GAP Service at Beech on 30th August.

More than 120 people squeezed into Beech Village Hall; good music, thank you Tony; thank you to Liz and Joy for reading God's Word to us; interesting talk from Keith, thank you; thoughtful intercessions from David, much appreciated; fabulously organised food, thank you to the amazing Sarah Neish.

There were many others who helped out — setting up tables, putting out more and more chairs as people streamed in, serving food, preparing food dishes at home, clearing up at the end. The list goes on.

But most importantly, we were together, united in worship and conversation around God's Word and works.

Can't wait for the next time now — roll on Advent Sunday.

With best wishes
Andrew

P.S. — thanks also to Andrew for unpacking the Old Testament reading for us and for Dan atop his ladder playing the part of Moses!
