on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10.30 -6pm;   Saturdays  11 – 5pm; Sunday 9-12.30 pm;  and  Wednesday 3- 6pm: Once the warm roof  and restoration is acheived,  we hope to have  funds to staff the office have even more open hours.

* We apologise, but as work to replace our roof continues, there is noise and dirt/dust  inside the church and the furniture and fittings are covered in dust sheets between services. It’s “business as usual”, though,  and our community and church activities continue.

The ‘Three Cajun Pigs’ delighted  120 children  the usual story of straw sticks and bricks – but with and Aligator testing out the Littel pigs Houses with his tail – it gets a light cooking in the hearth pot before they have mercy and let the villain go.
