The subject at Cafe Church today was ‘Partnerships’ and the congregation looked at how Jesus partnered the disciples before sending them on missions, a practice Peter and Paul continued in their missionary work. We were asked by Chester Diocese to remember our partnership Diocese in the Congo where there has been recent tribal conflict.
During the interval each table looked at successful and unsuccessful partnerships and there was a discussion about the part ‘respect’ played in a successful team. Jack Lakin completed the treasure hunt and won a tub of chocolate coins.
The service ended with a blessing on all partnerships, but particularly on two of our regular worshipers, Sue and Roger. Roger produced a ring and gifts for Sue and received a round of applause for the re-affirmation of their commitment to each other.
