Our Tea Party and Commissioning Service
Sunday 1st October
We were absolutely delighted to have around 145 people attending at our Befriended tea party and commissioning on Sunday 1st October at St Paul’s Catholic College.
From the moment that we began to set up the hall until we cleared away there was such a sense of unity and co-operation amongst the huge team who volunteered to help.
We enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment by The Sheddingdean Strummers; The Karen Hollebon School of Dance; Jo Kimber; and Stuart Barbour and band; and a delicious cream tea.
The afternoon was hosted by Rev Will Kemp, Vicar of The Point Church and concluded with a formal commissioning of the Befriended volunteers by the Rt Rev Richard Jackson, Bishop of Lewes and Patron of Befriended.
We have had such positive feedback about the whole event – the food, the atmosphere, the entertainment , the Befriended mugs……
We are enormously grateful to all those who volunteered on the day but most of all , we are grateful to our amazing God for the vision He has given us to reduce loneliness and isolation across Mid Sussex.
Here are some pictures of the day
