The Met Office has issued a weather warning for a high temperature on Sunday which might be uncomfortable for some people. The Worship Area is now equipped with air source heat pumps that can cool as well as heat, so this Sunday we are going to keep the hall open all afternoon until Songs of Praise at 4.00pm so that you can escape the heat. Please feel free to bring a picnic lunch or a book, and we will set out some chairs and tables.
