Ladies Fellowship Afternoon
May saw us hold our first ladies only function for the year. A High Tea was held in St Elizabeth's Common room for the ladies of the Parish.
Our Deacon, Revd Ann Frost was our guest speaker. She spoke about her years working on the PNG mission fields plus snippets of her married life on an isolated plantation in PNG. A wonderful women who has lived an amazing life.
It was a great afternoon of fellowship, everyone enjoyed both the afternoon tea and Ann's talk.
Thank you to Lyn for coordinating this event.
The Season of Lent
This year the Communion Table will be central to the congregation and placed on it will be symbols to help us focus on our journey through the Lenten Season.
These symbols represent our journey as follows:
The Crown of Thorns - the humiliation of Christ at his trial.
The red cloth - his blood shed for us.
The cross of crucifixion.
The bowl, towel and jug - Jesus' role as the Servant King.
The Cup and paten - his body and blood
The palms of his entry into Jerusalem.
The nails used to inflict pain at this crucifixion.
The hands of prayer - the prayers of Christ both for his disciples and also his own prayers in the garden of Gethsemane.
