Surprise!

Presentation

Sunday 17th September was just another ordinary Sunday or so Lisa thought. She had finished leading the 9am service at Great Ayton and was going through to the hall for coffee when she had a surprise. The 10.30 congregation had come early and all were gathered for coffee and cakes. She was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a selection of chocolate to mark one year of being the minister at Great Ayton. This surprise had been three months in the planning yet somehow Lisa's family and church family managed to keep this a secret from Lisa.
