We are in the paper! Both the local Wokingham paper and the national CHURCH TIMES ran the story on the “Breaking Ground” service last week.
In the papers quotes from Mayor of Earley Michael Firmager commented on what a great thing the St Nicolas Centre will be for the community and how Bishop Andrew saying it was an opportunity for for the church to be “inside out” – the people of God, through Gods Holy Spirit, flowing out like water to benefit the people living in the surrounding neighborhood.
We were privileged to have Pat Cox with us representing someone who had been present at the building of the hall in 1951, and Joshua Hull at 12 days old was the youngest member of the congregation. The Bishop prayed a blessing on the building and the whole congregation that together we can be a real witness of the love of God in our community here in Earley.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this momentous occasion. Photo’s of the celebration will be on our website very soon.
