Peter Green: January 2019
With building work having started on our church welcome area last week, there was no access to the gallery, apart from the sound and live-streaming operators. So the congregation was packed in downstairs a little cosier than normal. Fortunately, with a reduced sanctuary area, revamped choir area and extra chairs, we were all able to fit in.
John Miskin, our Fire Safety Officer was kept busy. As well as ensuring there was no double parking in the car park to ensure free passage from our reduced number of fire exits, he was reputed to be concerned that our minister Helen Kirk might create a fire hazard. This related to her making popcorn for the congregation in a microwave. Why would she want to do that you might ask? click here to find out from the recorded live-streaming of the service.
