Cake silver service

"The Journey of Life" was the title of this year's annual Silver Service held at the Alton Methodist Church. Organised by the Alton Anna Chaplains — Debbie Thrower and Rachel Sturt — the service is held to value and encourage older people in the community. Debbie introduced the service by reminding everyone that the Anna Chaplaincy started in Alton in 2010. Both Debbie and Rachel gave reflections on the journeys of our life. The congregation were in good voice and sang several hymns including "Guide Me Oh Thou Great Redeemer" which was chosen and introduced by Jennifer Arnold. After the service, everyone stayed for tea and cakes in the church.
Many thanks to all those who gave lifts to enable people to come to the service, to Tim Sturt for playing the organ and the hospitality team at the church for providing the refreshments.
