We had a fantastic weekend away at Otford Manor. Around 22 adults and 12 children gathered for a great time of refreshment, enjoyment, friendship and Biblical encouragement in beautiful surroundings. Thank you to Steve Titterton, who gave some wonderful input on the Bible's teaching on humility and Lynne Bone who did a fantastic job teaching the same theme to the children. Also a big thank you to the staff at Otford Manor who made us feel very welcome and comfortable and Tim King who organised and led the whole weekend. The video below gives a great taste of what we got up to.
Some History of the Names on the Memorial Boards at St. Luke's
There are 130 names on the board at the back, including some civilians who were killed like the 7 children killed on the way to Sunday School in the bombing raid in 1916.
Of the military personnel the average age at death was 26.
95% of deaths were in the army, the rest were naval. No air deaths
Many thanks to Margaret Bolton for carrying out this research.
Great news when we gathered together all the extra money raised above what was originally committed at the start of the year, we have raised around £18,300. That leaves us with £11,700 more needed for us to meet our costs this year. Read more...
