We give the assurance of our thoughts and prayers to all who are unwell, awaiting or undergoing treatment, anxious, or grieving for the loss of loved ones.

Worship today

There is NO public worship or access to our premises today, since work on the drains is being carried out by DynoRod. It is suggested that our congregation joins that of our neighbours in Meadowside St Paul's for worship at 11am.

Amendment to Preaching Plan

The service on Sunday 20th November will now be led by Mrs Beryl Cowling, as the formal “Trial Service” required at the end of her training period.

Trusted tradesmen

The Circuit Manse Committee is compiling a list of 'trusted tradesmen'. If you know of anyone you can recommend, please contact Dennis or Keith / Sheila.
