Morning Celebration

There is a Morning Celebration service this Sunday at 10am with a theme of "The Body of Christ".   John Wynburne will be joining us and will be taking part in a drama alongside Julia. He will also be bringing his guitar and leading us in one of our songs.  Jack will be riding a bike and I will need lots of children to help me take a body apart!  The Johnsons will be doing our reading and Angela will be baking some of her delicious flapjacks for afterwards.  We hope to see you there.
