Farewell Alan Jeffrey!
Alan held his last service as minister of the South Perth Uniting Church on 7th September.
We were very sorry to farewell Alan last Sunday and we wish him God’s rich blessings for his future and in his new role as Presbytery Minister (Pastoral). Thank you for the fantastic service on Sunday, your kind words and the very generous gifts. The young ones did a wonderful presentation of the storybook A Bus Called Heaven which they all signed and presented to him. Judy led the Singing Liturgy, “The Church Ain’t Gonna Be Quite the Same” and Kerry’s “Always Look on The Bright Side of Life” were fabulous variations on the originals. And so a sad occasion ended with much laughter and rounded up an excellent morning.
We also had Mr Bob Hunt and Mr David de Kock in the service. Bob is the Chairperson of the Presbytery of Western Australia and he was there to officiate at the breaking of the pastoral ties for Alan and the congregation.
