Church Clean - Many thanks to all who helped on Wednesday past. Unfortunately, due to low numbers we weren’t able to complete the clean this past week. If you can help us on Friday 20th Dec at 11am we would be grateful.
Building Work - Is now complete and a huge thank you to Peter and Angela who liaised with architects, banks, builders etc to make this possible. We still have some internal decoration to do but the fabric of our church is now more secure than ever.
O Antiphon Prayer - begins this week each evening at 7pm. It is a quiet reflection of just under an hour when we can escape the busyness and consumption of this season and place our cares and worries on the God who loves us
