Strawberry Tea 2016

We had a great Strawberry Tea to conclude our Patronal Festival weekend. A bumper crowd of people from the church and community came along, and the weather was kind to us. Many thanks to Stonepitts Farm for the strawberries, and to all who baked cakes and made sandwiches, served and washed up. It was especially good to see Barbara and Dave Martin, who were celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary.

Some pictures from our Pilgrimage to Rochester

Last Saturday a group of about 10 members of the congregation walked all (or some) of the way from Seal to Rochester. It was a great walk. There are already plans afoot (!) for another walk next year.... Watch this space!

Upper Halling

A welcome break for lunch and loos at Cuxton Churcn - many thanks for the hospitality!

Making friends...

Temple Manor - an unexpected historic building in the middle of an industrial estate on the edge of Strood.

Our pilgrims carried chalk with them to mark anything that impressed them on their journey. This was the sign outside Temple Manor - a building where Knights Templar once lived. 

Dark clouds loomed before a sudden downpour.
