On June 5th, 2019, the combined choirs of St. John the Evangelist and St. Matthew’s held a fellowship evening which included a delicious supper, prepared by the St. John’s vestry. This was followed by a jam session of music and song by the choir members who were present.
On August 5th, St. John the Evangelist (Coley’s Point) held its annual Garden Party with breakfast and games for both children and adults in the afternoon. The day included a BBQ and finished up with a dunk tank, featuring our very own priest, Rev’d Kenute Francis as the main target.
On August 18th, our annual “outdoor service and family day” for our combined congregations (St. John’s and St. Matthew’s) was held on a beautiful Sunday morning. The day included the Holy Eucharist, followed by fellowship with a BBQ and games for children and adults.
On August 26 -30, we had Vacation Bible School with the theme ROAR: Life is wild: God is Good! Approximately 80 children attended, along with 30 volunteers from the surrounding community churches. St Matthew’s church was transformed into a jungle for the week as seen in the photo.
