It’s good to link up with you! Here are plenty of opportunites to take part in family life – actively in events/meetings, and also importantly through prayer! Do get in touch if we could perhaps help in any way. God bless!

THREE WAYS TO BRING LIGHT TO THE DARKNESS!
Three suggestions to bring light on the dark night of Hallowe’en:

• Find the lights: a trail to find lights hidden in the middle of the village and see what they spell
• Light Displays: let’s put the Christmas lights up early outside our homes!
