The Hall is available for hire for meetings and parties and is very heavily booked. Book early to save disappointment. Also, please note that the Hall is not available for hire on Sundays because of the Church's own use.
Something to think about:
The News from the Middle East is not only full of the most desperate conflict, but very conflicting in our minds and hearts. There seems to be right and wrong on both sides, with the innocent on both sides suffering unimaginable suffering. We can pray for peace but our words may sound hollow. Maybe silence is all we have and the occasional and remarkable acts of human kindness?
