Creating Community event (2)

We enjoyed an excellent day at St John's Seven Kings today with large numbers attending our Creating Community event where the Archdeacon of West Ham opened our community garden, the Seven Kings and Newbury Park Resident's Association were presented with a Living Streets award by the Mayor of Redbridge, a range of community groups provided information about their services and a successful plant and table-top sale was held.

My dedication prayer for the community garden opening is: I dedicate this community garden for the enjoyment of local people and to the glory of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I pray that this garden will be a place of rest, reflection and pleasure for all who use it in future. May your Spirit fill this place enabling people to receive comfort as they remember loved ones and to enjoy the artworks that will be placed here and the beauty of the plants which grow here. May this place also come to be a focus for the local community as groups of local schoolchildren tend it and through the information provided via its noticeboards. May your peace and blessing rest upon it in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
