On a Sunday morning in early June this year, the Cherry Gardens Church received a visit from the Lofty Rangers Walking Group. The Group’s organiser has very strong links with many people in the area and caught up with news about them from members of the congregation.
The Walking Group chatted to us over morning tea and it was an enormous pleasure to learn of the backgrounds of all those involved and to share hospitality with them all. They expressed their delight in finding the Church on Hicks Hill Road, learning more about it and the community.
Although tucked away from the main road, for over 170 years, the Cherry Church has been a focal point. It is not unusual for individuals or groups of people to stop there, to look at the early headstones – many crafted by the nineteenth century Willunga stonemason and builder, George Sara – and to ponder how amazing it is that such a building is situated there.
Those who founded the church, though, had no doubt at all why it was built. They responded to the call of Jesus to spread His word. Over the many decades since, that call continues undiminished.
As a place of Christian worship, the Cherry Church and its lively congregation welcomes everyone to drop in. Sunday morning worship is held each week at 9.30 am, followed by a cup of tea. Please come and join us, we’d love to see you.
Thought for the month
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35 New International Version (NIV)
