of the church (as you face the front), ideally near to the
sound desk and baptism font (within the loop) and switch

this facility.

Parking - If you have a large car or people carrier please
could you not park in the bays alongside the road as this
obstructs the pavement & also impairs the view of drivers
trying to exit the main car park. Please could you park
elsewhere if you have a large vehicle to ensure safety for
everyone. Thank you.
Also, if you are parking in the company car park opposite
for church, please avoid the spaces reserved for the
residential flats.

God, through His Holy Spirit, wants to meet each of us
in a special way – to transform us. We believe that God
still communicates with us today. God may speak to you
as an individual – He may give you something to share
with the congregation. If He does, please write it down
and give it to Danny or whoever is leading the service.
