PRAYER GROUP Prayer meetings continue on Wednesday mornings at 10am in the Church hall. Prayer is the essential powerhouse of the Church, and your participation would be greatly valued. The small group is very friendly, and there is no pressure to pray aloud if you do not wish to.

You can do this either by contacting your elder or by contacting Janette Steele (01349 861591) and we will try our best to be of assistance. Please allow time for arrangements to be made.
