Parish Church

‘The Thursday Thing’ continues this evening at 7.30 p.m. in the church at Dorrator Road (just next to the Copper Top). Over the past couple of weeks we have enjoyed singing some songs, old and new, accompanied by Stuart on the guitar, taken time for prayer and contemplation, and been challenged with Amanda asking some of the BIG questions in life. So far we’ve been asked ‘Who am I’ and ‘Why am I here?’ What are the big questions in your life? You might get the answer or at least a clue to your direction if you come along to ‘The Thursday Thing’. You will be very warmly welcomed. Sunday past saw the celebration of Communion led by Amanda. Sunday coming the theme will be ‘Love outrageously’, come along at 11 a.m. to enjoy Sunday worship with us. Young and old, all are welcome here.
