THANK YOU

Lots of people work very hard at the major festivals to ensure that we are able to join in worship which is rightly edifying in all ways.  So we thank, in particular, those who decorated the church building so beautifully once again this Christmas and through to the Feast of the Epiphany.  We are also extremely grateful and thank most sincerely the…
