Summer is almost upon us!!

I am sure you are waiting in anticipation of the warm summer months. Some days it feels like summer may elude us, however we know it will eventually warm up and bring us bright sun and beautiful gardens. Already the grass everywhere is turning a shade of deeper green!

As you begin plans for the summer months we would like to invite each of you (with your family, friends and neighbours) to our special Summer Services on our front lawn. Our special Summer Services will be followed by a BBQ and a great time of fellowship. Please take note of these special dates;
