Church Magazine :  Following the wonderful response for articles for the Spring edition of the magazine there will be a Summer edition to be published for Sunday 24 August (After school holiday period finishes)

The theme for this edition will, not surprisingly, be SUMMER and we would ask for articles on thoughts of Summers gone by ; favourite hymns with a summer theme; poetry ( famous or your own) etc.
