Church party to remember when Jesus turned water into wine
The March Cross factor get-together at St Catherine’s Church, Fishburn, will be a real celebration!
Jesus’s first miracle was at a wedding banquet (when Jesus turned water into wine) and to mark that great event, church members and supporters intend to have a party of their own.
Churchwarden Phillipa Cooper said this week: “There will be singing and dancing, an activity we can do together, plus tea afterwards. They’re all great ways for families to come together to church, get to know each other and enjoy learning about Jesus.”
The celebration will be held on Sunday, March 1st, at 4pm.
To help with catering, anyone wishing to join the party is asked to ring Phillipa on 01740 622788 but she stresses that anyone who forgets can just turn up. “We will always have spare food to enjoy,” she says.
