One of the workshop participants said
The workshop got me doing something creative again I’m so glad I did. It has given me lots of confidence and I feel ‘enriched’ for having stayed.
DEDICATION PRAYER FOR THE BANNER
We give thanks for the many examples of service to our community that are commemorated and celebrated in Paul Church. We recall the words of Jesus that ‘Greater Love Hath No Man Than he lay down his life for his friends’
So we dedicate this banner to remember those members of the RNLI who have made this sacrifice and to inspire us and future generations to become loving and serving people.
The Banner shows the current Life Boat RNLB Ivan Ellen 17-36 and calls us to be grateful for those who in our own time continue to be there 24/7 every day of the year for those who find themselves in distress in the waters around our Coast.
At the memorial Service we use this prayer for the present crew members
Heavenly Father, may your light reach out to all of them across the dark waters, and help us, we pray, to draw hope and comfort from the light that shines in the darkness of the world; the Love of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
