WMC: November 2021
On Sunday 31 October our Minister, Keith, led a memorial service in our Chapel. Before the service people were invited to hang a paper leaf on Arnold Tucker's beautifully made "Christmas" tree. For those unable to come on Sunday there will also be an opportunity to write and hang a leaf on a Monday morning, during Community Cafe hours (9am to 12 noon) or on the Sundays to 14 November. The leaves will be finally blessed on Remembrance Sunday, before the tree is dismantled.
