On Easter more than 50 persons (including young families) gathered at Fletcher Church to celebrate the Resurrection of their Lord. By their presence they, together with Believers around the world, testified to the community and the world.
The Fletcher UCW's April meeting was at the Manse, with Mrs. Ann Lusina and Mrs. Reinie Marissen as hostesses.
