Today's Coffee Morning

 
 
Thanks to Jessie Scott and friends , a very successful coffee morning was held at Jessie's home . The weather cooperated enough for those who attended to enjoy a brief walk around Jessie's lovely garden.
 
 
I couldn't help but admire the sweet fragrance of the honeysuckle which has long been a favourite of mine . 


Sincere thanks Jessie !

A Very Special Occasion

Weeding at St Andrew's

Weeding can be an onerous task , but weeding the gardens outside St Andrew's Church is always a happy event because it means the beginning of the summer services at the Little Church on Mission Hill is almost upon us. It is a time to look forward to the 8am Eucharist which begins on Sunday June 18th . 

Today we met up with a hard working group of friends , and one very well behaved dog called Dennis. Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos . But the weather was ideal for the work in hand and we got a lot done!

Pentecost

On Sunday June 4th , we celebrated Pentecost . Pentecost Sunday commemorates and celebrates the receiving of the Holy Spirit by the early church . Jesus as you recall had told the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the Father's Gift of the Holy Spirit , who would endow them with power to be His witnesses to the ends of the Earth. 

After the coming of the Holy Spirit , the disciples left the upper room and burst out to tell the world the good news of the Gospel. This was the beginning of the church as we know it.

But our biggest thanks is reserved once again this year to Anne Johnson who works so hard to put this fun event together .
Now where did all those treasures go ......
