Weekend in Southend 10-11 February 2024

Sue, Trevor and Annie travelled from Coventry to Southend-on-Sea on Saturday 10.2.24 to meet up with Simon and Linda. On Sunday, it was Simon’s Induction service at the Burnham-on-Crouch Baptist Church, where he is the Community and Digital Pastor.

On Saturday, we went for a walk along the sea front.... dogs included!

The weather was a bit damp and overcast but we enjoyed the exercise.

Dinner at Thomassi's restaurant, where a blend of British and Italian cuisine was served. There was a good selection of Ice Cream Sundaes.

Trevor enjoyed his 'nutty chocolate sundae'.

Annie & Trevor performed a caterpillar sketch about 'transformation'.

One of our CSS members, Linda, was reaffirmed into the Christian faith. A special service took place on 10th November in the Wesley Chapel at the Coventry Methodist Central Hall, led by Revd Stephen. It was a wonderful occasion and was supported by several members of CSS, in person and via a Zoom link 💓🙏
