For those of the congregation who attend the Sunday 9.00 am service you are asked to note that on the 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month this will be a reflective Morning Prayer service rather than the usual Communion. Your continued support to the service and to our lay ministers who will generally be leading the reflective services will be greatly appreciated.
