We give a warm welcome to all who have come to share worship with us today as we gather to say farewell to Dan, Sharon, Asher and Hannah who have come to the end of their 8-week pulpit exchange and will be leaving the cold weather behind them.
As Dan leads his last service with us before returning to New Zealand tomorrow we pray for us all a time of rich blessing and new challenges.
Our friends from Castle Square will be joining us for the Bring and Share Buffet Lunch which will be served in the hall from 12.30pm as we gather to say farewell to the Spragg’s and give them a good Welsh send off.
A large selection of handmade greetings cards will be on sale after the service, do take a look, there are cards for all occasions!
