Avril and Tim's Wedding

Sunday February 5, 2012

At 2pm, Avril and Tim were married on the beach at Stuart Park in North Wollongong.
We travelled there, along with most of the extended family.
The day was warm, bright and sunny. There had been many weeks of dull and wet weather, so this was amazing to have such a perfect day. The next day we heard that the weather was back to awful again!
It was a lovely wedding and we were glad to be there to celebrate with them.

Church celebration

Welcoming the Turners
Tonight we had a great celebration with the church community to welcome our new pastor and his family. We had dinner together followed by an entertaining program to introduce the Turners to Canberra. It followed the alphabet....... the A to Z of Canberra and Canberra Baptist Church. It even featured a singing group called the "Pastoral Seekers", performing a slightly altered version of "A World of Our Own". They looked amazingly similar to that famous group from the 70's. My brother Bruce was a guitarist in the group.
It was a fun night.
