There will be a joint Service at St Andrews next Sunday with St Peters, starting at 10.00am. There will be no Coffee morning this week due to Easter but the church will be open to accept payments and draw the Tote.
"He is risen!" For the disciples on that first Easter this meant an empty tomb and some puzzling experiences as the wonderful truth began to dawn on them.
