WELCO ME to the Church’s worship as Christ invites us to think
what of ourselves we should be offering back to God and investing in
Him, and what of ourselves we should be investing in the concerns
and affairs of the world. Some of the children and young people will
be helping to lead our worship at the Parish Eucharist this morning
and then inviting us to join them over in the hall where refreshments
will be served by members of ‘Thank Goodness it’s Monday’.
