World Day of Prayer 2019

Our Women’s Ministry Team planned their October outing to incorporate the World Day of Prayer Service which this year was put together by GFS Rwanda. It was held at Beverly Hills Anglican Church and during morning tea we sorted through items suitable for the ‘Share the Dignity’ charity and placed them in handbags donated by our members.
We moved into the church for the service with its theme “Discovering our talents and serving God in the contemporary world”. The readings were Revelation 12:1-12 (for St Michael and All Angels Day, 29 September) and 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 which was the passage Leonie spoke on. Her illustrations and reminiscences brought home to us the reality of being part of the one body and the importance of each one us.
Following the service we moved back into the hall for a buffet lunch and time to chat. Thank you to all who participated in the service and those who prepared the morning tea and lunch.
