Christmas Celebration 2017

What a great night we all had on Wednesday 13th December at St Stephen’s Village Hall. It was a wonderful time to catch up with old friends, and to hear what they have been doing over the last twelve months. Thirty five members attended from as far as Beecroft, the Shire, Camden and the Blue Mountains.

The night opened with a welcome to all, for their attendance and long journey made, and then Dawn opened with prayer. It was lovely for all to see her again after a year of illness and although she is still not quite herself, Dawn still showed God’s Love and her commitment to GFS Sydney with her helpers bringing along the Gift Stall items. Dawn still makes like Jams, Lemon curd, Cards and much more.

We all then sat down to our two course meal, and of cause one of Doreen’s games (drawing on a paper plate on our head, after directions) with much laughter and a few even gave up, but a lot of fun.

Next all moved to the Piano for a Special get-together, as today was our monthly Prayer day. The Service was lead by Leonie, carols with explanations by Jean and the Music and Prayer time by Lynne and her chosen members.

Our Guest speaker was Leslie chaplain of Newmarch Age Care Services, who spoke on “His love endures forever” Psalm 118. Thank you to all the ladies who put together our Service.

Then to get the body moving again, Di from St Clair lead a Conga Line, around the hall. Sitting down once again for our annual Thank you’s and Kris Kringle which brought many smiles and photo’s. The evening concluded with all members standing, holding hands and saying the Grace together.
