Just a note…

At the moment we have a shortage of Sunday School teachers. This means that once a month, for the next few months, all the children will join us in church. We will inform you of these Sundays as they come up, the first one being next Sunday. We would ask that on these Sundays the children sit either with a parent or with another adult as we don’t want to leave them alone. We look forward to our younger members being with us and trust they become encouraged to learn another aspect of ‘going to church’. Thank you for your help and understanding.


The will of God is not something you add to your life. It’s a course you choose. Elisabeth Elliot
