On Friday 4th March at 7pm, at Audley Methodist Church, we joined women all over the world, as they shared a service of prayer, written this year by the women of Cuba. The theme was,"Receive Children, Receive Me", and our speaker was Rev'd Alison Anderson. Two thirds of Cubans belong to Christian Churches, and they are now free to worship without persecution. We sang Cuban songs, ate Cuban biscuits, and learnt more about the life of Cuban children, and the importance of children within the Christian Church.
