Sunday 30th August saw all parishioners join for a single service of thanksgiving for the ability to celebrate Holy Communion in the church again. Julia invited the congregation to place a stone as a memorial of freedoms lost during the pandemic. Above the cross is the last arrangement of flowers used before the closure of the church in April to remind us of the past.
The floral cross created during the service was a symbol of the future and celebrated the return of gatherings of faith. Musical celebration was provided by organist Dr Warren Bourne who relieved organist Brenton as he recovers from eye surgery. Elizabeth and Nish assisted Julia during the service.
