Over 70 people gathered to celebrate 20 years since the Providence Christian School was formed.

The school, formerly the Lewis Independent Christian School, celebrated its anniversary on Saturday 16 November.

The crowd, representing more than seven different denominations, gathered in the Associated Presbyterian Church building for a Thanksgiving Service.  

The service was conducted by Rev. Graeme Craig, a longstanding Board member, who preached on the appropriate theme: “Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.” 

After the service, supporters enjoyed a time of fellowship over refreshments, including a special anniversary cake, and were able to take a trip down memory lane by looking at a display of photos through the years.

The event had past, current, and prospective parents in attendance and many remarked on how special the day was.

Some of the younger children were eagerly looking forward to starting school. With the Board considering expanding in due course to include early years and secondary provision, an Anniversary Appeal was launched, encouraging supporters to give £20 per month to help increase its regular income as it begins the next 20 years.
