On a personal note .. “The Hope of Spring”

Lockdown reflections have resulted in the creation of another instrumental CD with a variety of styles, creative tunings, and lots of fun! Copies are available from me at £10 in a card sleeve or £12 in a plastic box.


As Covid rises again, please stay safe – masks are still available in church



Face Masks are required but for the benefit of those who still feel vulnerable, people are wearing them – there is gel at the door and chairs are distanced to minimise any infection

 The noticeboard has a link to a special video service each week
