During the week leading up to Easter Sunday the corps held nightly meditations. Visual images, video extracts and extended scripture readings allowed those attending to reflect on the many themes of Holy Week.
On Good Friday, the churches of North Gillingham met for an open air witness in the High Street, with the corps band leading the worship. A good crowd attended and balloons stating ‘Jesus is alive’ were given out to children walking by.
Easter Sunday commenced with a sunrise service by the river and then breakfast back at the hall. This was followed by an Easter celebration with many family and friends attending.
Caroling and Christmas Fayre, Carol Service at the Hospital and caroling at the lighting of the Christmas lights on the high-street, presents for children and food parcels to families, our carol service and our Christmas dinner for 80 senior citizens were just some of the activities that our Salvation Army Corps was involved with this Christmas. Very, very busy and yet very, very rewarding! We thank God.
Nearly 70 people attended the Harvest Lunch.
We were well fed with a meal of shepherd’s pie and apple crumble and entertained by Captain Haris who sang and played his guitar.
We look forward to our Harvest meetings tomorrow (Sunday 2nd October) at 10am and 5pm.
