Lilian Petch was the longest-serving member of Trinity Grace Church, having been part of the fellowship from the very beginning until her home-call in January 2021. Please visit our heritage and legacy page to read the order of service, listen to the funeral sermon and consider her legacy in all the memories we have recorded. These were some of her favourite sayings:
If you’re serving God, you should be working not shirking.
I’ve never had a lot, but I’ve never been short.
Do your best for God, because only your best will do for God.
Lilian lived in the faith, died in the faith, and has now gone to dwell with the Christ of her faith. As she is added to the cloud of witnesses, let us all follow in the same faith to attain the crown of glory that can never fade or spoil.
