Message from the Searles
“Thank you for the wonderful send off that you gave us on our final Sunday. It was such a blessing to be able to celebrate, pray, give thanks, cry, eat and laugh with you all. Your kind words and prayers were overwhelming. The hog roast / BBQ was seriously impressive and tasted fantastic. We saw so much hard work had been put into it prior to the event and on the day too.
And if that wasn’t enough, your financial gift was amazing. Thanks for being so very generous.
The book of messages that was put together was beautiful and touched us deeply. It is lovely that it is something that we can keep and treasure for always. Your words and images manage to sum up our time in torquay so beautifully where our own words have failed us.
This last seven years had been so good and we are grateful to Jesus that he has worked in all our lives and the life of the community through each one of you.
We would love to invite you to join us if you can, when Mark is licensed at All Saints in Bath at 7pm on Thursday 7th Sept. There will be a reception in the church centre after the service. If you are planning on coming please could you let Katharine Pidwell in the office know as this will help with planning at the Bath end. Katharine will be able to give you the location details, but you will need to arrange your own shared transport. We do hope that some of you will be able to join us at the start of this new chapter.
We will continue to pray for you all and hold you in our hearts.
God bless and thank you.
Mark, Meg, Charlie, Em, Tom and Matty.”
