Thanksgiving Service

20 Feb

Staff of Westlake United Church Trust, friends and supporters, attended a Thanksgiving Service in the Community Hall last night (Tuesday 19 February 2013).

Jamie McGregor addressed those assembled, discussing “Why we are here” and citing examples of all the wonderful things that had happed in the life of the organisation during 2012.  Rev David Gray delivered the sermon, discussing the scripture reading from Ephesians.  The  multi-lingual evening was a joyful celebration and the singers really lifted the ceiling with their praise.  Special thanks go to keyboard player Fabian Brown from Westlake and Arlene Kaliema who led us all in song.
