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.

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.
