World Day of Prayer Refreshments
Come everything is ready
Great Ayton Garden

'Come for everything is ready' was the theme of the World Day of Prayer Service on Friday 1 March 2019. I went to Great Ayton Methodist Church where everything appeared to be ready. There was a table laid for a feast at the front of the church. In front of the table were two vases full of flowers.

The service was prepared by Christian women from Slovenia. During the service we heard their stories of struggles, lessons learnt, hopes and victories alongside a reading from the Bible about guest who were invited to a feast but chose not to come. We had a chance to respond to what we had heard by giving money towards projects supporting women and children around the world. As we did so, we were given a flower each: a red carnation, a flower from Slovenia.

After the service, we had a chance to enjoy refreshments including honey and cinnamon biscuits made using a Slovenian recipe. I left the service feeling glad that I came.
