Paul and Lucie Bell have recently celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. The church celebrated the occasion in style – Paul and Lucie gave a presentation of their missionary work in Burundi with pictures showing the school where Paul worked and the Medical centre where Lucie was a nurse.
The Revd James Cook made a presentation of a floral tribute from the church and thanked them for their many year of association with Christ Church and their unstinting support on so many aspects of church life such as PCC members, Missionary Prayer Group, visiting residential homes, supporting and leading services.
Lucie responded by recalling their association with Lorna Burgess and Kathleen Hack, former church members, who supported them when they first went out as Missionaries.
The service was followed by a lunch in church and then the cutting of the celebratory cake!
