YOUR GENEROSITY

About a year ago we started having Own Arrangement Services giving people the opportunity to share with us their passion for a particular missionary society or charity.  In that period you have given the best part of £1000 to these causes – so a very big thank you.

The Worship Development Group is always looking for ideas for Own Arrangements, so if you would like to be involved in one of these (or any other service) please let us know.  Don’t be afraid, we’re there for help you – you don’t even have to stand at the front!
