We also shared some of our hopes for the future, and invited visitors to give us their ideas about how the church can best serve the community.

Busy Bees

Wednesday 31 August - Friday 2 September

Our annual holiday club for primary school aged children. We sang and danced and told stories. We made stars and arks and sheep masks. We skipped and baked and arranged flowers. We created bug houses and moulded our hands and took time to be mindful. And that wasn't even all of it...
