On Friday 5th January 2018, by popular request, we held our third Folk Carol Service. The service made a lovely start to the new year and it was lovely that so many people were able to join us. Please read the short report in our February newsletter.
There was a good turnout for the Christmas dinner (cooked by the men of the church) and everyone enjoyed the meal. Thanks to all who helped in any way.
On Christmas Day we held a joint service with our friends from the Wellspring Church and how lovely it was that we could come together again for the celebration service. Thanks to Camilla and Kevin who led the service and to Paul who played for the hymns. A wonderful start to Christmas Day.
On Christmas Eve at 6pm our Carol Service was led by our Minister. The Sunday Explorers also took part with a drama – looking through windows towards the star. The service was well attended and made a lovely start to our Christmas Celebrations.
It was lovely that we were able to keep the church open for the afternoon of Sunday 26th November so that people could come and join with us for a hot drink and mince pie. This was very well attended. Thanks to all who supported this.
Carole and Roy were delighted that so many people were able to come to their coffee evening when they shared slides (set to music) of their American Adventure which included the gospel cruise in Alaska. There was a super atmosphere and Carole and Roy have received many kind comments. £200+ was raised for URC funds.
