Yesterday, St Michael’s welcomed a number of visitors from St Peter, St Paul & St Thomas, Bovey Tracey to our morning service. We first met when our two churches had an away day at PPT last June. While there, we were invited to give a presentation about our parishes and were treated to a cream tea provided by members of PPT. This was the first opportunity for a return visit.
The service was followed by lunch. Many thanks to Mary for organising it, and to Sue and Sue for doing so much of the washing up, as well as to everyone who contributed food. We had a great time!
After lunch, after everyone posed for a photo on the steps, Revd Tim lead a group of our visitors on a short tour of the parish, starting out at the Redoubt (aka the Blockhouse), walking down to Morice Town and then across to Devonport Park – a fairly representative cross section of life in St Michael’s parish.
It was as cold as it looks in the photo! From the viewpoint you can see right over the dockyard and Keyham, and down towards Plymouth Sound.
We all look forward to the next opportunity to be together, as we all enjoyed learning more about our different contexts for living as the people of God.
