A reminder that during August (i.e. from next week) we will be running a single joint service at 10am bringing together the congregations from our 9:30am and 11:15am services. The service on both 4th and 18th will be a Sung Eucharist (traditional setting), on 11th a Morning Worship service (contemporary setting), and on 25th it will be Songs of Praise. Normal service(s) will resume in September. Our 8am communion service will run as usual.
