This text is on display in our porch and it sums up well what we try to offer:-
If you are curious
and have come to see
If you are weary
and have come to rest
If you are grateful
and have come to give thanks
If you are hurting
and have come for comfort
If you are listening
and have come to pray
If you are seeking
and have come for answers
We welcome you in Christ’s name!
