As part of its 200th anniversary celebrations the church held a party recently, a lively evening that started with a buffet supper followed by games that were enjoyed by all ages from 3 to 80.

A slightly different ‘café style’ family service took place on the theme of “Living Water” which started with a coffee before getting involved in the theme with bubble activities for the children and thinking stations for the adults. Some lively modern hymns were sung accompanied by the worship band.
