Rotas are available in each church. (If you would like to make a donation towards the cost of flowers in memory of a loved one, please contact Gay for more information).

MorePraise is our monthly service for all ages (including babies, the more the merrier) held on the fourth Sunday evening. We meet at 6pm, and our next service is on May 26th. The theme is Songs of Praise, and we join forces with the Flower Festival to sing favourite hymns and hear readings. MorePraise Regulars: bring your sticker card too.
