If you or a member of your family are familiar with Microsoft PowerPoint and can spare a couple of hours once a month to assist with the setting up of a PowerPoint presentation, we would like to hear from you. Please speak to Ruth Winterburn or Charles Lasham.



Our Minister,Tim has been elected to be Moderator of General Assembly of the URC for the year commencing July 2024. This is a great accolade for him, and we extend our heartiest congratulations.
