Following a recent Sunday service, attended by newly re-appointed Mayor of Thame Don Butler, members of Cornerstone, part of Long Crendon Baptist Church (LCBC), hit the streets on a mission to clean up the litter.
When asked in the service what he thought about being the Mayor, Don Butler answered, “It’s wonderful as you get to see things like today where you have a group of volunteers doing good things around the town.”
Around 40 people, made up of all ages from grandmas to grandkids, hit the streets armed with gloves, bin bags and retractable arms after the service held at John Hampden School in Park Street. “God loves Thame and we wanted to demonstrate that in a small but practical way”, says Krish Kandiahwho spoke at the morning service on “what would Jesus say to Boris Johnson?”
Cornerstone is a new café-style church, meeting every Sunday at 10 am in John Hampden School. Services and is open to all ages. It regularly involves discussion, the use of video clips and both traditional and contemporary music.
