tea party table set to goWe have so many helpers in all of our churches, whether people clean, or do flowers, or play the organ, or help clear up the churchyards, or polish the brasses, or set up for services, or help at Messy Church or Storybook church or sing in the choir – all these aspects of help and support represent an amazing resource for our churches. And so to say thank you to our helpers, we held a tea party in our Parish room in Henshaw on Tuesday 5 September, where 24 of us gathered to enjoy a tea that would have put the Ritz Hotel to shame. This was a most social and convivial gathering , with good conversation and friendship.
