Do you ever wish church services were a little different? Do you wish we could try out something new once in a while?
Well, this month you can come along at 5 o'clock in place of the regular evening service. Interested by the sound of informal Picnic Church, or intrigued by what an Agape Communion BBQ might be? Come along.
We'd love to see as many people as possible trying out these services, and please don't forget to give us your thoughts afterwards.
