The Rev. Ben Robertson preaches a sermon for 1 Advent at the Chapel of the Cross.
Come celebrate with us on Christmas Eve, the Feast of Our Lord’s Nativity.
We are collecting food boxes for our daily bread. You can pick up a box and a list in the Parish Hall. Once you have collected the items on the list and filled your box, return it to the Parish hall.
