Sheringham Methodists celebrate Queen's Jubilee
Platinum Jubilee celebrations at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Sheringham included a Jubilee lunch and an afternoon tea party.
The weekly Wednesday ‘Do drop-in’ Community Café at St Andrew’s celebrated in style with a ‘right royal’ lunch, right, which included Coronation Chicken and Jubilee Trifle.
Jean Parton from the leadership team at St Andrews said, “The food was prepared and cooked by our amazing chef Andrea and served by just as amazing volunteers. All the guests received a special Jubilee key ring produced by Rosa West along with a copy of the beautiful book ‘Our Faithful Queen’ produced by ‘HOPE Together’. There were ‘royal’ quizzes and the presentation of a specially written ‘ode’ by Deacon Brenda Hayes.”
An afternoon tea party, pictured above, was held on the Sunday afternoon, indoors because of the inclement weather. Jean says, “The weather did not dampen the spirits of many who came from the community around St Andrew’s. The tables groaned with food, which was enthusiastically consumed, and a jolly ‘sing-song’ was led by St Andrew’s Minister, Rev Sharon Thraves, with many of the songs having a meaningful message. There was of course, a Jubilee ‘ode’ from our ‘poet’ Deacon Brenda! The proceedings ended by singing ‘God save the Queen’.”
The Drop-in Café meets every Wednesday at 11am for coffee followed by lunch at 12noon. There is no charge, but donations are welcome. This is open to anyone who would welcome meeting others as well as receiving lunch.
St Andrew’s meets for worship each Sunday at 10.30am. More details of other activities are to be found on the website www.sheringhammethodist.org.uk
