Last Sunday we spent a lovely morning at a special service for users of St Andrew’s United Reform Church in Broomhall, where we hold our monthly meetings . We were made very welcome. Many different Christian churches use the space for worship including Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and Chinese and Congolese worshippers. They gave us a flavour of their ceremonies with song, dance and readings. Then we had a delicious lunch and were served freshly brewed Ethiopian coffee!
Although the WI is a non-religious organisation, we love being part of a centre like St Andrew’s that is very much part of the community and welcomes people from all over the world to use the venue including a playgroup, soup kitchen, breakfast club and child contact centre.
