Over the last few months we have been having major work done on the interior of the church building. This includes having new toilets and a kitchen built, removing the pews, having a new floor laid and relocating the original font. We are doing this so that we can be more creative in how we use the church building and so that it can be a flexible space to be used by our community.
While the work is not completely finished we are pleased to share that we are now back in church on Sunday mornings for our worship times together. and for the vents and services below. As usual all are welcome to join us.
