Post Pet Service 2013

St Paul's Pet Shop Girl Band

St Paul’s youth band - the 'Pet Shop Girls', Hattie, Lucy, Saskia, Lily and Sarah

We had a terrific time at St Paul’s last Sunday 16 June, hosting our annual pet service for VIP's  - that’s Very Important Pets!

One of the highlights was the youth band the 'Pet Shop Girls' who made a great effort dressing up for the occasion.

Around 176 adults and 68 children, with a whole range of animal friends came to visit.  Dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters were all present in the procession for prayer and thanksgiving. Revd Claire Isherwood was assisted by her dog Anca, a great team.Revd Claire Isherwood With Anca At St Pau'ls Camberley

I asked Claire to give us a brief synopsis for those that couldn’t make it. Claire said: “Regulars of St Paul’s plus quite a few visitors and their pets gathered to thank God for the pleasure and love that pets give us. The theme of the service was about the importance of feeding our faith as well as our pets.”

With no catastrophes, there was lots of fun and laughter in the service and pet snacks were wolfed down afterwards.
