Wow what a wonderful day we all had, brilliant!

Lots of lovely new visitors with lots of children, beautiful animals (thank you to Basil & Co.), very crafty and imaginative messy church activities from the messy church crew, yummy food from the catering crew and volunteer bakers, great goody bags, friendly welcomers and a beautiful stable setting for our nativity scene (thank you to the creative crew). It was so much fun on the day - PERFECT (even the rain waited)!

Successful Concert!

A big thank you to the members of the United Methodist Choir who travelled from Alabama USA to perform for us on Thursday evening (as part of their tour).  A wonderful evening of music and fellowship whilst also raising much needed funds for the Ugandan Community Hall Project.  £600+ raised on the night with more to come.  Thank you to all who supported this event! 

Watch this space for the final total.
