Sherwood United Reformed Church
hosted this years World Day of Prayer

Over forty folk attended (including a handful of men!) to experience a delightful, informative and uplifting time of worship created for us by women in Chile.

Hymns were a mixture of old, new, English and Chilean.
Entitled "How many Loaves have you?" both the service and the address, given by Revd Louise Gee, challenged us to consider the gifts God has given us and how we might share them.

The Communion TableThe Communion Table is set out for the service:
In addition to the usual flowers, Bible and candle are:
a jar of earth,
a carafe of water,
a covered bowl containing bread,
a blue bag for the offering of money,
and a collection plate to receive our prayer offerings of gifts which, as part of the service, were written on cards printed with an outline of a loaf
