Twilight Garden Party
On Saturday 11th May the first St. Mary's Parish Garden Party was held. Very thankful for the lack of rain (and the winter coats and wooly hats) a wonderful night was had.
There was a delicious spread of food, the garden was decorated beautifully and as the night progressed, the lighting of the church and all the fairy lights in the garden made it feel very special. It was nice for so many of us to be able to take a step out of our busy lives and leave the kids and work behind for a bit, and reconnect with the community that our church gives us. And as the cold crept in we found ourselves forming very tight bonds as we huddled around the two pit fires for perhaps more physical warmth than spiritual! On the back of such a great night, St. Marys certainly hopes to repeat this again.
