Shrove Tuesday evening 05th March 2019 saw St James Church host a Pancake Party as a farewell to Bishop Andrew on behalf of the Woodley churches. Members of St Johns and Emmanuel churches joined us for the occasion.
Preparations began earlier in the afternoon with many of the St James team involved. A production line was created to make batter & cook pancakes, and prepare sweet and savoury fillings. Games were setup too.
Our guests arrived and 300 perfectly round tasty pancakes were soon enjoyed.
Bishop Andrew was presented with a cake (what else!), a floral arrangement for his wife, and a large card with our Good Wishes for their retirement. Laurence thanked him for all his support and ministry to us.
A big thank you goes to the team who made this possible.
