Worship was led by the Revd.Fleur Houston and the service focussed on C0mmitment for Life, a scheme of giving which supports the work of Christian Aid. The Revd.

We are sustained in this by the knowledge that God, through Jesus, has committed himself to us and is always present, loving and upholding us.
