over the years that have been.

The early record books of the church were on display which named those first members from Bethel and Seion who were released to form the new church. Copies of `Goodly Heritage' the history written of the church at
the Centenary in 1958 were given out. More copies are available for these who would like them. Thanks also to the breakfast `team' who ensured we had a lovely breakfast together!
