April was another busy month. Our events started on April 2nd with a needlework day.

Monday 4th April was our first mens' breakfast, when Dave cooked us breakfast and we discussed what we would be doing at future breakfasts.

Wednesday April 6th was the date of an extraordinary church meeting.

The bible fellowship group met on 5th and 12th to continue our study of what mission is. On 19th we looked at the celebration of Passover in the Seder meal, trying to follow modern practise.
Thursday 14th April was the occasion of our "Throw out Day" when we tried to get rid of some rubbish and find places for some of the rest.
The Ladies' meeting took place on 20th April, the theme was Bonsai Trees.

Good Friday, April 22nd, we held a service at 7-30p.m. where Susannah helped us to explore the meaning of the "Stations of the Cross." Tea/Coffee and hot cross buns followed the service.
Saturday, 23rd April, St. George's Day, was a coffee morning at church when we met an interesting variety of visitors.

Easter Day was an early start for the 8-30 communion service led by our pastor, Jonathan. David and Elaine cooked breakfast for us following the service. Susannah and Jonathan then led the 10-30a.m. service.
