Café Church Saturday 2 April.  This is a time of modern worship songs, a time to explore what it’s all about. Do you have questions to ask about Christianity? Come and ask them – we are eager to hear your questions.  Do you play an instrument but don’t have anywhere to play?  We have a drum kit waiting for a drummer.  Let’s make plenty of noise together.  Come and join us for refreshments; tea, coffee, squash and cake available throughout the worship.  We start a 4.30 and all are welcome; if you would like to have a go at playing some of the music with us come to our practise night Thursday 31 March at 8 pm in St James church with your instrument.

See you there!
