Redcliffe Reunion

Six former Redcliffe students met together at Merrifield in Eastbourne. They studied at Redcliffe during the late 1950’s and early 1960s.  Kathleen Parsons wrote the following report of the day.

Those present were Kathleen Hall, Megs Owen, Barbara Gamage, Rita Hay, Hazel Newman and Kathleen Parsons. We were warmly welcomed by Kathleen Hall and over coffee and biscuits we shared what we had been doing over the year.

After a time of praise by song and prayer to the Lord, Kathleen Hall shared news of Palestine and Israel, which we brought to the Lord in prayer.

Over a delicious dinner there were great discussions and sharing concerning those who had been with us, but were unable to join us due to age, illness and some had been taken home to glory.

We had a reading from Psalm 139 and shared a few thoughts on being wonderfully made by the Creator, for example, “hands” (v10) leading our thoughts to the Lord’s hands which were stretched out wide in love for us and allowe to be nailed to the cross for us.

The rest of the afternoon was taken up in prayer for Redcliffe, staff, students and other needs as well as past students in various parts of the world serving the Lord. A beautiful fox sitting on the lawn visited us, which we had to admire!

After home made scones, cream, jam and tea, and a short walk around the lovely garden, we reluctantly said goodbye and went our various ways.

God willing we meet again the third Saturday next May 2010. Our prayer is that more Redcliffites will join us.
