21st September was Ron’s last day as our Pastor.  His morning sermon, passionate throughout, and sometimes emotional, completed Paul’s letter to the Philippians on a note of thanksgiving.  In the evening, the church was packed for a praise service wishing him farewell.  Favourite hymns were sung with gusto, Bill Lavender delivered an appreciation, and presentations were made to Ron and Steph.  After the service, refreshments were enjoyed by all.

The church was full for Ron's farewell.
