This Sunday (14th June) we were overjoyed to welcome Henry and Liz's family and friends to Burnham Community Church to celebrate the dedication of their daughter Hannah Mary Malaiperuman.
Around 50 people joined us as we came together for a short time of worship, Led by Matt and the worship team, before Steve gave a short talk on bringing up your child in God's way, and the importance of teaching them about who God is and His ways, as well as demonstrating God's love to them. Henry and Liz then announced their promises to dedicate Hannah to God, trusting in Him to provide, lead and guide Hannah and themelves as she grows up. The church and visitors then joined with them, making their promise to support Henry and Liz and to help them support Hannah throughout her walk. The service came to a close as members of the church prayed over Hannah as well as Henry and Liz, for God's protection, guidance and blessing on their lives.
After the service all in attendance joined together for a delicious lunch, where a variety of hot and cold delights were served, from salds to pulled pork rolls. It was all topped off with a range of lovely deserts including Sharons famous trifle and a beautiful cake made especially for Hannah's dedication.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and made it such a special day, and a special thank you to everyone who came and helped set up and pack away. It was a great demonstration of a community working well together
