Altar rail kneelers at St Johns

A cause for celebration!

Many years ago, when Stephen and Christine Rowe were ministers at St John’s, a project was begun to create some embroidered kneelers for the altar rail step that reflected the beauty and character of Caversham and honoured the Lord’s goodness to us. For various reasons the project stalled, but in Febuary 2018 St John’s Church Leadership Team decided the project should be completed. Under the leadership of Pat Jones, a small team of embroiderers have completed the kneelers, and they look fantastic! We are also very grateful for a donation received towards the cost.

The kneelers were dedicated at our 9.30am on Sunday 15th December, and thanks were also given at our Thursday morning service on 19th December. At these services, it was good to welcome a number of those people who had worked on them over the years.
