Pot Luck Lunch – after Church on Sunday 28th April

It's good to share a meal with friends, so the Nurture Group have decided to hold another Pot Luck Lunch on 28th April after the service.

It can be hot (we can reheat in the oven)  or cold. It can be a family bag of crisps or a plate of sandwiches if you don't cook! Part of the fun is not knowing what people will bring. We could end ...
