Sunday 4th February 2024 – Special RESTORE Service

Hope to see you  at Church on Sunday morning.

Our Parish worship service is at 10.30am at St Paul’s Church.  This will be an All Age RESTORE Service.  If you don’t know what RESTORE is – it’s what we call our work with the community during the week.

We will be hearing from those who have been coming to our church buildings for many years  – but rarely or never to a Sunday service.

Why do they come?  What attracts them?  How do we serve this community in the name of Jesus?

Many questions!

All will be answered on Sunday….. if you can’t make it the live stream of the service is here. We will start streaming at 10.25am
