Welcome to our Year Book On-line  2015

For many years we have produced an annual book containing short reports of all the ministries in this church.  This has always been an encouragement to read and to see how God is working in many ways that most of us wouldn't have realised without the Year Book.  We are experimenting this year by producing the Year Book on the site in a way which hopefully adds to the effectiveness of the paper version and at the same time integrating it into the inofmation which is already on the site.  Previous Year Books can be seen here.
