Baptismal service in the garden. That got the attention of people waiting at the bus stop - and was certainly a wonderful way to celebrate Easter Sunday.

Two tonnes of gravel + two hours + one dream team
= sparkly new pathway around the chapel.

That should keep the mud off folks shoes on Easter Sunday as they pop outside for the baptismal service.

Planning today to get back into the chapel area under the rear gallery - hopefully for Easter.

We've loved our time at The White Lion - and are really grateful to their fantastic team of staff. 


Out-of-the-blue, a note and a cheque arrive from a church in the Midlands.

Thank you everyone at Desford Free Church! The money is helpful, but the encouragement is priceless.
