Pictured right is a special bracelet designed by Rowena and Bob to reflect and celebrate the Church, Worship and Parish Centre of St. Luke's Church, Stone Cross.
Each bead represents a different aspect of St. Luke's. A large bead for the hall, three smaller beads for the meeting rooms, a wooden bead for the old high altar and various other beads for our priest, servers, candles, etc. The final feature bead is unique to each bracelet and represents a unique "You" within St. Luke's at Stone Cross.
For this bracelet, the beads are strung on elastic to fit various wrist sizes.
