Evening Home Groups take place on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.  The Wednesday evening group will meet at Richard and Sheila’s home. The Friday group will be meeting at 2.00 at Beryl’s.

Magazines  Do pick up a copy of one of the magazines on the table.  There are some very encouraging stories of God at work in so many different situations.  Following on from the message about “looking up more than down” last Sunday, they will hopefully inspire you on your walk with the Lord too.
