This week we have our Vision Service for 2021. This is traditionally a service where our year text is revealed to the congregation via another wonderful banner that Kath has designed, but this year you will have to use your imaginations. In this year’s service Chris expands on our year text for 2021 and looks forward to how God will use us as a church through the new year.
Karen leads the rest of the service, bringing us an update from CSW, our Mission of the Month for January. Mike chooses the music.
