EVENING SERVICE SUNDAY, 10th FEBRUARY

Dirk and his band Borderline are organising the evening service along the Valentine’s Day theme “All You Need is Love”.  If you have a story of love found or love lost that you would like to share plus perhaps a song, either a hymn or a secular tune, phone Dirk asap on 07847 739 533 or 625 3224 and leave a message.

We are hoping to perform or sing together around six songs with stories because we believe in a story-telling God who is Love.
