Sunday 26th July

Revd Velma Campbell and Revd Kan Yu are leaving the Circuit this summer.

We cannot meet in person to thank them but the Sunday morning YouTube service on Sunday 26th will be a farewell service for the two ministers.

It may not be a traditional farewell service but it is planned to make it a special occasion.

Please come and tell the many others whose lives have been touched by these special women.


Sorry, no cheese scones or spring rolls afterwards.
