We have been faithfully serving the Lord and our local community for 80 years and have a vibrant and growing Boys Brigade and Girls Brigade at the centre of our youth outreach, along with a Sunday Junior Church.

Adopt-a-Road: We are praying for the residents of King Street this week, and Lee Road next week.

Personal: Eileen, Glady, Doreen and Wendy all receiving excellent care in Aldringham Court.

Ivy recovering from a recent fall.

Dave waiting for results of recent monitoring.

Sheila now making good progress and in much less pain. Pray for God's healing to continue.
