Valentine’s Day was celebrated with a difference at a United Benefice Service to welcome Bishop Emmanuel from Bo! Enthusiastic singing, a Bishop preaching, and a total of 10 licensed or ordained ministers, all robed, made for a memorable occasion!
The full church moved successfully into a full hall, with only a few lost on the way, for the Bring and Share Lunch! Homemade quiches, breads, salads and delicious desserts were much in evidence, although none of them stayed around for long!
Welcome is the name of the game in African communities and many from the benefice have visited Bo and received traditional hospitality, but the Chichester Harbour Churches certainly held their own and can be justly proud of the range of food, drink and society offered to the Bishop – from drinks and canapés to afternoon tea, from fish and chip suppers to the Bring and Share!
