Notices 27th October, 2019

Louise,

If you are visiting today, we're thrilled to have you with us. We come here to worship God by singing, preaching the Bible and praying together. God is the highest priority in our lives because through Jesus we have forgiveness from our sins and the hope of a new life spent with Him!

  • Please ensure your child/ren do not play on the stage, up in the balcony or in the graveyard either before or after the service.
