By working hard together, our small steps will build your path to the future. The Lord is my Shepherd...he guides me along the right paths" Psalm 23
Assemblies

Assemblies

We have been fortunate to have good enough weather to hold some of our recent assemblies outside on the field and in our wildlife Discovery Area.  It has been lovely to sit, reflect, listen and pray in such a beautiful space and listen to the sounds of the Valley all around us.  We hope to continue this work with our Vicar Jane – both through Messy Church Club sessions outside and also through the creation of an outside reflection area and dedicated space for worship in the Discovery Area which will enable us to use this space more for assemblies when we are blessed with good weather.
