Christmas Meeting

Our eagerly awaited Christmas meeting was not a disappointment! In fact, it was a wonderful occasion: a Holy Communion Service, provided by our newly consecrated Bishop of Loughborough. The week before, a goodly number of people had made the pilgrimage to Canterbury to witness Guli’s Consecration. Now 32 of us were privileged to be given communion by Guli, assisted by Robin Robson. The new Loughborough chalice was used. Harold Killingback of Brooke has made this (a man of many talents!)

Two new members were enroled and welcomed.

As is our tradition, Christmas fayre followed, kindly provided by Committee members.

A Question and Answer Session confirmed what we had thought, that Guli will make a wonderful Bishop! Pamela Woods presented her with a glass vase, engraved with the Mothers’ Union emblem.

Our next meeting will be the AGM on Thursday 11th January 2018, at 2:15pm. Before this, we’ll have fish & chips. at 1:00pm in the Church Hall. Please ‘phone Pamela Woods (755371), to place your order. As always, everyone welcome. New programme available – please come!
