LABYRINTH MADE TO AMAZE
Watch out for an unusual attraction in the grounds of the United Reformed Church in the very near future. Minister Rev. Paul Breeze will be setting up a prayer labyrinth. "It's like a maze marked out on the ground" says Paul, "With various objects along the way to encourage people to pause and pray." Villagers can expect to see and hear more of the URC's mission initiatives.
