Ties that can bind

Sunday morning was spent in the company of the in law and out laws at the Church hall on Gamesley for the third local reading of the banns for my brother Rob and his other half Sarah’s forth coming wedding.

Now I don’t flag this up for the obvious family ‘tie’ I flag it up for the more general community tie in part for the fact that this year the Church of England Church on Gamesley run from the Geoffrey Allen Centre is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this year, and whilst the ‘ties’ that the church provide may not be as direct as for example family ties, but at least locally the work of the church has supported and helped develop a number of community ties such as the former Jericho cafĂ©.

Throughout the year there will be a number of events to celebrate the first 40 years of things done by the Church of  England locally, and hopefully there will be many more over the next 40 years to come, with I hope some of the other churches locally joining some of the wider community work that has been done.
