Sunday 3rd March 2019.
To lead our Morning Communion Service we welcomed Methodist Supernumerary Minister Rev Nick Young from Hertfordshire.
Nick’s sermon challenged us as to whether we seek the Glitter of life or lasting Glory. His sermon can be heard here. Nick also spoke to the Children about the story of The Emperors New Clothes, which enhanced his sermon for all of us.
