All our churches had represenatives present and everyone enjoyed singing the hymns played by church organist Mrs Vanda Irish,. Mr Michael Tagent gave the address and the service was led by our Vicar Rev Matt Rowland. Refreshments were served after the service, and everyone enjoyed the chance of a post Christmas catch up!
