Singing praises at

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE gath­ered to­gether for a har­vest af­ter­noon tea fol­lowed by singing. The event was held in the late af­ter­noon on Sun­day in the Fitzwilliams Cen­tre, in Wind­sor End, Bea­cons­field as part of the Sil­ver Sun­day ini­tia­tive.

The idea was to put on spe­cial events for older peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

Peo­ple en­joyed tea and cake in the hall be­fore head­ing over to St Mary and All Saints Church, for Songs of Praise. Hymns in­cluded Praise My Soul The King of Heaven, and Dear Lord of Mankind.

Rev Dr Jeremy Brooks said: “I am re­ally grate­ful to all the will­ing vol­un­teers who baked cakes, served teas, ar­ranged lifts, and brought peo­ple round from some of our care homes.

“It was a su­perb event and I hope it won’t be the last time we do it!”

There was also a Har­vest Ser­vice in the morn­ing with gifts of non-per­ish­able items do­nated to support the work of the Ne­wham Re­newal Pro­gramme in East London.
