Michael’s 50th Celebrations

On Sunday 4 September it was an absolute delight to have with us Michael and Elizabeth Jackson, with their three children and numerous grand-children.  Michael was celebrating 50 years in the ministry, which started here at Over.  He led the Communion service, with Elizabeth and David (Skitt) helping; Simon, Andrew and Ruth read the Bible passages.  After the service, a magnificent spread was served in the Church Hall, and everyone had the opportunity to reminisce with the family.  It was a truly wonderful occasion.  Pictured is Michael serving Communion with four of our Elders, and Elizabeth and David who had moved from the dais to the front pew.  The second photograph shows Michael and Elizabeth cutting the celebration cake.
