Sunday 21st April 2019.
To lead our Morning Family & Parade Service, we welcomed Rev Paul Howes.
On this Easter Sunday Paul led our thoughts on on some of the people involved in the activities of that first Easter morning, including the early visit to the tomb by the women, and Peter hurrying to find out just what had happened? His sermon can be heard here.
We had a few issues with microphones, so audio quality today is not as good as it should be, for which we apologise.
