Thanks to both for their help this Sunday.

WINDOW REPLACEMENT: The work has begun on our feature window at the front of the church building.
Scaffold has been erected over the front door entrance. It would be appreciated if all will take care, as

off for the duration of the works. This is merely to make it more comfortable for worshippers who normally sit in the balcony area. Any questions please speak to Alex Baird or Ian Morrison.
