August Break

Home » News » August Break

During August, the daily 'Thought For The Day' will continue Monday to Saturday as before. However, the daily postings at noon will become occasional postings at noon. Traditionally, in the UK and many other parts of the world, this time of year is known as 'The Silly Season'. This is because solid news items are fewer, resulting in many more frivolous articles to fill the gaps.

So to spare both reader and scribe, we will only post at noon, when there is something important to share, such as information relating to our eventual return to worship at Buckingham Street. We will also continue the tradition of posting each Saturday, the hymns and other information about the following day's live streamed service from the manse.

If, however, you can think of something that we should post during this time, please let me know by phone or email: 01296 424653 | Meanwhile, we wish you a safe and relaxing August.
