Come, Dine with Me!

After the morning service, yesterday, many of the church joined together in Knighton Park for a picnic. A great time was had and we were blessed with glorious weather. After the food, adults and children joined together in a game of French cricket. Another attraction was the ice cream van, not far away! 

Food is often an occasion of not just eating, but also of friendship, fellowship and joy. The Bible is full of examples of meals – from picnics like the feeding of the 5000 to the great banquet, which is a symbol of heaven. Their great characteristic is that all are invited.

Certainly, laughter and joy were much in evidence yesterday.
