The Church Community

Home » News » The Church Community

Last Sunday's church anniversary service, led by Mr David Neville, involved many sections from our church community. So the music was led at different times by Organ and Choir, the Music Group, the Youth Choir and the Zimbabwe Fellowship Singers. Prayers were led by Senior members of the J Team and the Good Faith Book Club, and readings were by the Girls' and Boys' Brigades.

There were reminiscences by long-serving and recent church members and the church was visually enriched with the work of the Banner Group and Flower Arrangers. Some hymns were chosen by the Tuesday Fellowship, Welcomers, Music Group and Coffee Bar. During the service, Mrs Melvina Brown was introduced as our recently appointed Family & Youth Worker.

The service was a celebration of how all of us are part of God's community. It linked well with our Minister's recent note that, "may we not forget why we do what we do and...WHO we do it for."

After the service, there was a soup lunch in the hall for the Boys' Brigade.

"A basket of ripe fruit," I answered. Then the LORD said to me, "The time is ripe for my people Israel; I will spare them no longer. 3 "In that day," declares the...
