While our congregation is large and our worship style formal, the warmth and friendliness of our members are apparent as you become involved in our small groups.
From Sunday School classes to choirs and special interest groups, the strongest bonds, the closest relationships are found in small groups. It is here that we experience some of the warmest exchanges of friendship and expressions of caring. For more details on these and to find out about other small groups and events, contact the Church Office and ask to sign up for our e-mail newsletter, the e-Spire.
