Monday Spot (20 April 2015)

We are pleased to say that our reported technical difficulties have now been resolved and we are able to publish normally once again. Our weekend held great interest for all and began with the wedding of Rachel Horwood and Mark Johnson, the service being conducted by corps officer Major Alec Still. Vocal solos were superbly presented by Susanne Dymott.

We are sorry

We are sorry that we cannot publish our usual Monday Spot at this time because of technical problems beyond our control. This is particularly dissappointing as we were to have brought you pictures from the wedding of Rachel Horwood and Mark Johnson which took place on Saturday.

We hope to have the service restored within 48 hours (perhaps 24 hours) and as soon as we do we will bring you Monday Spot as usual (complete with wedding pictures), albeit a little late. Once again we apologise and ask for your patience.

Easter Fun

Photo-0058 (Medium)  Jane Haystead

This month’s meeting of the Ladies Fellowship was led by Jane Haystead who had planned some activities with an Easter theme. This involved some craft work, sticking, drawing and decorating Easter egg designs. Then some brain taxing word searches, crosswords and anagrams and the Easter quiz. Nobody scored more than 12 out of 25 but never mind, we had fun. There was a plate of M&Ms for each table with an Easter poem relating to them.

The SWEET truth of Easter

These candies tell a story –
The best news you’ll ever hear.
It’s about Jesus dying on the cross
So that we could be brought near.

So hold them and turn them and you will see …
The ‘M’ becomes a ‘W’ an ‘E’ and then a ‘3’

The ‘E’ stands for Easter
God’s everlasting love and His eternal plan.
It reminds us of the cross and the way God rescued sinful man.

The ‘3’ represents the 3 days Jesus spent in the grave ..
By His death, His children He did save.

The ‘M’ reminds us of the mercy the Messiah showed
As He died in our place
And the miracle of the resurrection
So we can see Him face to face.

The ‘W’ reminds us … that He alone
Is worthy of our worship and praise
And calls us to be His witnesses
Around the world for all of our days.

Sheena Gibbs read some poems as part of the Epilogue before sharing a prayer with us.

The programme for the coming months is as follows:

May 18            Speaker: Major Alec Still
June 8             Crafts and Strawberries
July 13             Mike’s Paintings with Mike Gibbs
August             No meeting
September 21 DVD night
October 12      Candle Party
November 9    Shoe boxes
December 7    Christmas meal.

All women are welcome to join us at 8 pm at the Chatham SA Hall for an evening of fun and fellowship.

Here are some pictures.

Notice re: Wednesday Bible Studies

Majors Alec and Andrea Still have asked us to notify that there will be no Wednesday evening Bible Studies for the next two weeks due to the number of regular attenders  who are away. Please ‘gossip’ this around the group to ensure that everybody is aware of the change. The studies will recommence on Wednesday 22 April.
