PRESIDENT Jackie Wade welcomed members from Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Bungay and Watton Inner Wheel clubs, Ely Tangent Club as well as club members and their guests, to the annual Overseas Supper, held in St Mary's Church Hall, on Wednesday evening. She invited the club Overseas Service organiser Ethel Smith to introduce the guest speaker. The charity to benefit from this year's event is the Smile Train and as they were unable to send a speaker, Mrs Smith was delighted that Tariq Amhad a consultant plastic surgeon from Addenbrooke's Hospital was able to address the 60-strong audience.

After his talk, Mr Ahmad answered questions and was thanked by vice-president Jill Sallis for his informative and at times amusing talk. A cheque for £500 will be forwarded to the Smile Train and more information can be seen at

The Olive Tree Fellowship

SUNDAY'S worship focused on our desire to enthrone our Lord in our lives, to direct us in all things. The Pastor brought a message of relevance to the nation, the church at large, and individual Christians: it concerned the picture of restoring God to His rightful place in the centre of life, as suggested in the story of David bringing the Ark of God back to Jerusalem. Holy Communion followed the preaching, as a response to the challenge.

Sunday: worship is at 10.30am and the speaker will be the Pastor. Crèche and Sunday School will be provided. On Friday, from 10am until noon, the Open Door Café will run at the church (in Silver Street), offering a welcoming setting in which to relax and enjoy refreshments and good company.
