The large new auditorium at Victory Ministries International in Gelvan Park, Port Elizabeth, was filled to capacity as women enjoyed the recent annual high tea event at the church.
“I really don’t know where we will hold it next year”, said Pastor Jerome Liberty, after the space was filled by the 840 women at 75 tables that were set out with outstanding arrangements inspired by the theme of ‘High tea at the beach’.
“The standard of creativity and excellence was very high as people were just discovering hidden talents they did not know they had.” said Liberty. He said that during the day women heard messages about discovering their purpose in the greater assignment that God has for them and the vital role they have as women in building a community and a society.
Women contestants in the event had to research the theme, then set their tables and serve their guests.
Asked what made the event so special for her, Patricia Arnolds said: “The joy of serving people in an excellent way. Also bringing out the creativity in me.”
Stephanie Genade , who won the best decor award, said she enjoyed “bringing unity among the women in the church”.
