What I like about St Cuthbert and St Aidan’s churches is …
“… the warm, and friendly welcome from the “meet and greet” team at services and other church events”.
Every day – pray for the Clergy, Carol and Kate, Lay Readers, Richard and Jane, Bryan, in training and Church Wardens, Malcolm and Anne and there is a prayer for each day in the ‘Upcoming Events’.
All things bright and beautiful … how great is God Almighty who has made all things well.
