Sunday 1st March

Bishop David presided at Sung Eucharist

We were delighted to see three persons affirm commitment of their lives to following Jesus Christ.

Our Bishop David laid his hand on each individual head and asked God’s Holy Spirit to give them the strength and commitment to live God’s way for the rest of their life.

Sunday 22nd March

Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday was originally a time when people returned to the church, in which they were baptized or where they attended services when they were children. This meant that families were reunited as adults returned to the towns and villages where they grew up.

This Mothering Sunday we wish to especially welcome all of you, who have been attending our Sung Eucharist and participated in our events, but we have not seen you for a while. Come and visit us!
