Sutton Christian Centre was transformed into a mini version of Australia on Saturday 3rd June when we got together to say farewell to Paul, Sarah and Alex Elphick before they head off to set up their new family home in Australia.
Sarah was born in Adelaide and had come to England where she had met and then married Paul…and before too long we had the joy of getting to know young Alex. Paul, who had been part of the SCC family for some 22 years, is having to swap his support for Sutton United for the Adelaide Crows!
The afternoon featured a sausage sizzle, inflatable kangaroos, the singing of Waltzing Matilda and of course, attempts to play the didgeridoo!
We’ll miss the lovely Elphicks, but pray God’s best for them as they start a new life on the other side of the world.
