A warm welcome is extended to all visitors, friends and neighbours who are worshipping with us today.

 

Parents with young children are welcome to sit on the carpet during the service. Alternatively, there are toys in the room next to the foyer, where the service can also be heard over the sound system.

 

It is our custom to light a candle five minutes before the service commences to signal the beginning of a period of quiet to enable members of the congregation to prepare themselves for worship.
