We had a very challenging and thought-provoking time during Lent in preparation for the excitement of Easter Day. Our thanks to Miriam, Michelle and Dave for leading our thoughts especially at the discussion groups at their home. We joined with our Christian friends at River for the Holy Communion service on Maundy Thursday, and on Good Friday several families and children joined in an afternoon of activities.
Our hall was beautifully decorated for Easter Sunday when Miriam and Michelle led our worship and we shared in Holy Communion. It was good to welcome some visitors to our service that day.
The presentation of prizes to the winners of the latest Beacon Church Art Competition took place on Saturday, 10 March. The theme of this year's competition was "Creation" and we are pleased to have received so many entries.
Around 30 people were supported by the Night Shelter which took place at churches around Dover - including the Beacon - during the winter months, providing warmth, food and shelter for those who might otherwise be sleeping rough. We are pleased that a number of them accepted help in various ways during that time and some have been rehoused, while others are awaiting dates to move into accommodation. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with this initiative.
Thanks to everyone who supported the coffee morning on Saturday 20 January which raised more than £120 for the Winter Night Shelter.
We started our New Year with the annual covenant service led by the Rev Miriam Moul on Sunday 7 January.
