We want to serve free tea, coffee & cordial. There will be a sausage sizzle, cake & produce stall to raise money for local schools ministry. Children will be playing in the playground while adults are voting. Volunteers are needed in all these areas. Please sign up today to help. – Matthew

A Sceptic’s Search for God

1209091_374566649337861_867679909_nTHE CHURCH LIBRARY HAS FOR YOU : A helpful book, easy to read, hilarious even, called : “A Sceptic’s Search for God.” Ralph O. Muncaster tells of his own search for convincing evidence of the existence of God. His scepticism took root at a young age in Sunday School and Church; perhaps you can identify with this young  boy’s  thinking when you were growing up? In his adult life the author was challenged to prove the existence of God. His endeavour fills the book with a wealth of powerful and persuasive facts, which will breathe new life into your faith. Moreover these facts will help you to share your faith with sceptics !
