Following the announcement about Her Majesty the Queen’s Death we are opening up the church again from 10am to 12.00 on Saturday morning 10th of September, as a space for individual prayer and reflection. There is a book of condolence and it’s a space for us individually to give thanks for all that the Queen has meant to us and our Nation and as well as to share our thoughts and prayers with the Lord.
Please feel free to just come. Do let anyone else know about the space for whom this may be helpful.
With my prayers for you and the Royal family at this time.
This Sunday we are reflecting on Faith, Hope, Service and receiving comfort from John 13 3-5 & 12-17
