New Banner for 150th Anniversary

February 25, 2020

The GB will be working with the banner group ladies to make a new banner to mark the 150th anniversary. It is to be a large cross made up of about 70 small crosses. If you have a piece of material (preferably cotton and at least an A5 size and up to an A4size) then please leave it in the box in the foyer. It would be good for all the congregation to play a part in the new banner.
