Party! Thank you for Brenda's Ministry
Saturday 11 May at 7pm
On Sunday 12 May Brenda Holden will officially ‘lay down’ her Reader/LLM stole as she retires from this ministry and becomes a Reader Emeritus. We will, of course, still see her busy as ever in other areas, but we wanted to say a thank you for this particular part of her ministry and are arranging a ‘Thank You’ Party. We would be grateful if you could indicate when you are able to come and if you are able to offer any food or drink for a ‘bring and share’ table. There is a list at the back of the church for you to do so. Please speak to Jan, Scott or Linda if you can offer to help definitely.
