THANK YOU

HOPE JOURNEY – EXPLORE

Last Monday, 17th June we welcomed over 100 children from two primary schools into the church to “Explore” various aspects of our church life and worship (also including information about Judaism and Islam) finishing up with some rousing singing to send them on their way.

A very big thank you to all the 25+ volunteers who helped make this event such a success.
