Dedication of Maria 19 November 2023


During a beautiful Dedication ceremony the latest of our “lockdown babies” was officially welcomed in to our church family.

Maria was presented by her parents, Tatenda and Shamiso, to Corps Officer Captain Clare Allman, who introduced her to the congregation and challenged her parents and Godmother Fungasai, to bring Maria up in the way of the Lord and to keep her safe from harmful influences. Fungasai prayed for Maria and her family and also charged the congregation to look after Maria.

Following the ceremony our Cradle Roll Sergeant presented certificate for Maria and then the African Praise Choir sang to celebrate Maria. Then after the meeting, we shared tea and coffee and cakes in celebration.
