Alternative Sunday Worship

 It is expected the alternative worship on the third Sunday of each month will continue for the time being. 
It is anticipated these services will include different musical styles such as songs from Iona or Taizé style whilst others may include little drama sketches or video/DVD clips.  Some may be Bible study and these will be held in the hall seated around tables.  On other occasions services may include a quiet time of meditation or reflection.
