We extend a warm welcome to everyone who joins us for worship today.
If this is your first visit we trust you will gain something from the service and will return again soon.
The members of the Kids Club team are leading our worship this morning: This will be the final service on the theme ‘God Bless the NHS’. In Phil’s words ‘We’ve got a great service coming!’
As this is the fifth Sunday of the month there is NO evening service.
All are invited to join us for tea or coffee, which will be served in the hall following the morning service, when hand made cards will also be on sale.
