Hands of Gratitude

The 9.30am service on the first Sunday of the month has traditionally been an opportunity for “Something different”.

On the first Sunday in October we enjoyed the accompaniment of an augmented music group with Brenton Brockhouse on the tuba while his brother, Grant, visiting from England, played the organ.

In response to the New Testament reading about “the gift of God that is in you” we took part in “Messy Church for Adults” by cutting out shapes of our hands and inscribing them with things for which we are grateful. These became the leaves of a “Gratitude Tree”.
