Ascension Day 2013 – To the woods, to the woods!

Ascension Day in Peyia forest - Sharing the peace

Ascension Day in Peyia forest

The congregations of St. Luke’s, St. Stephen’s and Ayia Kyriaki gathered together in Peyia Forest, between Paphos and Polis, for a celebration of Holy Communion followed by a picnic.

The day was fine and not too hot, and by 11.00 there 53 of us under the trees ready to sing and pray, to hear God’s word and receive the sacrament. It was a wonderful mixture of praise and devotion, lots of great singing, with a flute to help us along, and prayerful worship.

After the service many stayed on for a picnic and good fellowship was had by everyone. It was certainly an Ascension Day I shall never forget and my thanks to everyone who contributed and organised this celebration in such a memorable way.
