Our June meeting was a ‘celebration tea’ to celebrate Fr Phillip’s 25 years in charge of All Saints Porthcawl.
We started with a short service at 2.30pm. Sue Coughlin welcomed everyone, then a hymn, the Mothers’ Union prayer, followed by a lovely eulogy (with humour) by Hannah Jones telling us of Fr Phillip’s time at All Saints. Fr Phillip said prayers and then we all trooped off to the church hall for sandwiches, cakes, tea etc.
As well as Mothers’ Union members, people from Churches Together and other organisations attended. It was also nice to see Frs Jonathan and Craig again. Maria, Hannah’s daughter, made a wonderful anniversary cake and Fr Jonathan gave a toast. Fr Phillip thanked everyone. I would also like to thank everyone for putting on such a wonderful show.
