On Mother’s Day each year we celebrate those women in our lives who have brought us up, loved us, inspired us, encouraged us and played a special part in our lives. ‘Not Just For Mothers’ was an event for women to enjoy and spend time with their daughters, mothers, grandparents and friends. The church was decorated with balloons everywhere, including a garland of balloons to create a welcoming arch in the entrance.
Just over one hundred women attended the event on Saturday 30th March for an afternoon of pampering, cream teas and craft. The craft area was particularly popular with mirror mosaics, plant pot decorating, card making and Himmeli – which is geometric sculptures made out of straws.
Afternoon tea was served in the basement, with piano serenade. Sandwiches, cakes, macarons, scones and cream and jam, were all enjoyed, as well as pink lemonade, which was a hit!
Part of our mission as HBC to be a transforming community is to act with Christ to bless the communities that we touch. Giving people an opportunity to celebrate those women who are special in their lives is one way we see of serving the community.Share this:
