WMC: April 2019
On Sunday 24 March we were very pleased to welcome Matthew Forsyth back to talk about the work of All We Can (Methodist relief and development). Matthew had been invited to lead our worship some time ago and his visit coincided with the news of the terrible aftermath of Cyclone Idai in Africa.
