Church Library

A new facility for all users of our hall (and members of our church.) 

We are developing a library of books about religion and Christianity for anyone who might be interested in finding out more. They are free for anyone to borrow – all that we ask is that you put the title of the book you have borrowed, your name and contact number on the sheet in the folder which you will find on the bookshelves..

Keep looking for new additions to our collection over the coming months – the current list is below.
