Holiday at Home

Millie Robinson reflects on Holiday at Home, 10 - 12 July at Wrangthorn.

Monthly Tea and Cake socials built up to the ‘Holiday at Home’.  The 3 day event involved lots of exciting crafts and workshops, including lace making, cake decorating, making paper flowers, dancing and a quiz! As the first event of its kind, it was quite small, with the busiest day being Thursday with 8 guests, but with a mix of people from Wrangthorn, St George’s, Community Church and a few friends too, there was a lovely atmosphere each day, and new friendships were made.

"It was amazing to see the relationships formed between the interns on team and the guests, and to bridge the social gaps of age that so often occur in the church."

The event was planned and led by several of the St George’s interns, and has been a very exciting venture for them, with lots to learn along the way. It was amazing to see the relationships formed between the interns on team and the guests, and to bridge the social gaps of age that so often occur in the church. It was a privilege to hear stories of people’s lives and history, and share our hopes for the future, as well as have a lot of fun and a lot of cake!

"We know that God will have been at work this week, through the new relationships formed, old relationships that have been strengthened, and just the time spent together as a community."

We know that God will have been at work this week, through the new relationships formed, old relationships that have been strengthened, and just the time spent together as a community. We pray that God will continue to be at work in the lives of everyone who attended, and that He would be preparing the way for more events of this kind in the future.
