Alton Webteam: May 2016
Debbie, Jonathan and I would like to warmly welcome you to come along and bring your friends of any age. We look forward to welcoming those of any faith or none and will have a relaxed time where everyone, we hope, will feel at home with a cup of tea afterwards of course!
We will celebrate the Life and Contribution to the community of Alton of all those of more mature years — some having lived over a hundred years! The Service, as is the case every year, is the result of many suggestions and contributions from those of older years and those in our Churches who are fortunate enough to spend time together.
Each year it is a wonderful occasion and this year we will be especially thanking God for the magnificent leadership given by the Queen who officially celebrates her 90th Birthday in June, a week after our Service. A beautifully illustrated book has been produced showing how she sees her leadership as a woman of faith. It has a very appropriate title ' The Servant Queen': serving God and the nation. In 2002 she said ' I know how much I rely on my faith to guide me through the good times and the bad...I draw strength from the message of hope in the Christian gospel'
So please put the date in your diary Sunday 5th June 3pm. Come and join us!
The Anna Chaplains: Debbie, Helen and Jonathan
