We look forward to welcoming Rev Viv Gasteen who will be preaching at our morning service on the 9th September. Viv has been appointed by the Circuit on a part time basis to look after the pastoral needs of the three churches in our Group.  Some of you have already met Viv when she came to the Friday Coffee Morning. Viv is a supernumerary minister who moved to the Wirral just over a year ago. She will undertake home communions as well as visiting church members who are in hospital or at home and unable to attend church.
