Office arrangements during Summer
Valerie O’Regan, our new Personal Assistant (PA) to the Senior Minister, begins on 25th January. In the meantime, our other staff will be monitoring our church phone and emails.
During the five Sundays after Christmas, we will be hearing from a range of local and guest preachers on a variety of topics, before we commence a new sermon series in Term One. Today we welcome Bishop Peter Hayward as our preacher. Next week, special guest Moussa Ghazal will speak to us about ministry to Muslims.
