Sounds of Silence 
Sunday June 18th at 8.15 am gathering in the warmth of the lower lounge/chapel!!  Please join us for a time of contemplation prior to morning worship.  We are going to listen to some very contrasting versions of the song “Sounds of Silence” and then reflect on our impressions and responses. Please feel very welcome to join us. Lee O’Connell   –
