Heston Aniteye and Deborah Scanlon were married on Friday in Calry and their little daughter Arabella was baptised. We pray for God’s blessings on them and their marriage will be life-giving and life long.



Thank you very much to everyone who prayed for us and followed our progress. We arrived back later than expected but in time for last week’s service, at which Tammy and Gus showed a few pictures and videos. We have lots more to share. So, if you’re interested, on Wednesday 23rd at 7.30 pm we are going to hold a Congo Evening! Why not plan to join us? (Venue tbc)


If you would like to support a very worthwhile woman’s project you could buy a handmade basket. There are small, medium and large sizes priced at €5, €10 and €15. Tammy and Gus are the sales reps!



Next Sunday we look forward to hearing a little about the ‘Move’ week.

Could you help with preparing for Sunday worship by setting up slides on Video Psalm?
