Can you help Baaaaarney to find his friends? We hope that EWE can! Join us for our next family service on 16th June (11.00am) where we find out why Jesus would leave his 99 safe sheep to go and find the one that was lost. WOOL have a great time with songs, story and you can even make your own sheep! (And Rev. Catherine promises to stop with the sheep jokes...afterwards!)
