Farewell Chris & Lydia

On Sunday 28th February, the community bid farewell to two Emmanuel stalwarts, Chris and Lydia Erving.

As tokens of our love and gratitude for their distinguished service to Emmanuel for over 10-years, Fr Nigel presented Chris (a former churchwarden and treasurer) and Lydia with a farewell card signed by parishioners and a beautifully engraved wooden cross.

Chris and Lydia – you will be greatly missed at Emmanuel, but all of us offer you our very best wishes and blessings for your future happiness in Melbourne, Australia.  Fr Nigel
