Pentecost

Sunday morning: Pentecost, the birthday of the church...just after 8 we were on our way to finish decorating the church. Various banners needed to be put in place, along with a series of helium balloons, which needed to be blown up and used to decorate the centre aisle. Once this was done, the church looked very festive indeed, which was possibly incongruous for the more formal 9:30 service with which we started.
The Pentecost Party at 11 was a joyful celebration, but how could it be otherwise? Cake, balloons, pass the parcel, a short talk aimed more at children and a few hymns and spiritual songs and we were on our way.
Lunch at home, later in the afternoon at Betty's before returning for the evening service. A few talks to a few people before and after to find out what was happening, and then we were all set to go home, eat fish and chips and prepare for the new half term for boys and for Viv's trip.
This morning, Viv sorted out and got ready, with lots of exciting things to do. David set off to collect Betty at 12:30, and we caught the train to Lime Street. From there, a quick visit to WHS, then Viv and Betty got on the train to London and David and I got on the train to Bromborough.
Did you know that there is no station on the Merseyrail network with "Crescent" in its name?
Anyway, back home, washing up and things, then on to the evening: pies, potatoes, that sort of thing.
