when the child Jesus was lost,
protect our dear children for time and eternity.
May you be their father and counsellor. Amen

Shalom Shalom, The folk choir, recorded a CD entitled “Shalom” in the lead up to Christmas. The CD contains a variety of spiritual songs and hymns ranging from well-known favourites such as “Lady of Knock”, “How Great Thou Art” and Abba’s “I Have A Dream”, to less well known but equally beautiful and uplifting pieces. Following a very successful sales campaign members of the choir were able to make donations to several local charities. Click here to see photos.
