The Feeding of the Four Hundred
It might not have been a miracle, but it was a remarkable achievement.
We want to say a huge thank you to all those who were involved in the UKHK friendship festival last Saturday at Supermarine. Some 400 people attended the event.

The Swindon Hong Kongers
Came up trumps providing everyone with really delicious Chinese food. It was definitely not a case of too many cooks spoiling the broth. Everybody was needed there.

Chinese New Year, the “Year of Rabbit”
St John’s celebrated the Chinese New Year, the “Year of Rabbit” at the Friendship Festival at Supermarine Sports and Social Club on 28th Jan 2023.

We learned a lot of British idioms
As part of the Friendship Festival, so we take our hats off to Charmain.
So thats what it means! – The meaning of English expressions
Chinese New Year, Dragon Dance.
Our thanks to those who led the actions on stage
And for all those who manned the stalls all day and made the “wishing tree” – now in the
corner of the church as a reminder of the event. If you would like to hang a prayer or name of a person on there, please do.
When Charmaine was asked on BBC Wiltshire Sound earlier that morning if she was planning to do it all again next year, I expect the colour drained from her face. We could not see her expression.
Thanks too for the lovely Chinese snacks after the 11am service last week – the seaweed was probably an acquired taste.
For more information or questions, please contact Charmain.
