SUNDAY SERVICE Travelling together with Jesus in faith, hope and love. Reaching out with God's care and love for all.
This coming Sunday, our All Age morning service is being led by the RPC Elders and will include the Rededication of Junior Church Leaders & Helpers and conclude with Holy Communion.

The reading from James changes our idea on Harvest from what we humans think it is i.e. food?
God sees us as his harvest, we come from a seed and grow and hopefully promote his love and care.
Youth workers are essential to this aim to expand the pool of God’s harvest.
As usual our service will start at 10am
