With the room and tables beautifully decorated, the members arrived at 11am where Rae served our morning tea. Lots of joyous chatter filled the room until 11.30am when we commenced our Christmas Service. Honouring Joy’s suggestion, our Service was compiled around each member’s chosen Christmas carol. With Lauris playing the piano, most carols commenced with an explanation of why they were chosen then sung with great gusto. Interspersed with some biblical verses to set the scene and prayers for others, we worshipped with much joy and thanks for a great year at Westcare.
Our Service was followed by our delicious Christmas lunch and our Birthday girls cut the cake. It was a pleasure to have Claire Dawe and Scott Leslie together with David and Geoff (who set-up every meeting) join us.
Many thanks to all who assisted in ‘a Christmas to remember’. Our Blessing, sang together concluded our day.
