St Thomas’ Church  - keeping in touch

Building the Kingdom...................................

 

 

Here is a photo from Barbara’s ‘do’ after the morning service last Sunday outside on the church grounds (wonderful sunshine) as we celebrated all that God has given to St Thomas’ and the community through Barbara and pray for the new season in her walk with God, looking forward to her being ordained and going to serve as a curate at St Stephen’s, Preston. Thank you to everyone who made this such a special occasion – to all the hospitality team, the team that ‘waited on’ tables, the furniture shifters, the worship team – the celebration included a song written especially for Barbara by Glyn and sung to an appreciative crowd enjoying cakes, scones and a brew. Revd Dave did the presentation before the Peace in the service, which included a floral gift and the church’s monetary gift to Barbara.
