 Woodbridge Regatta - 23rd June

A message from Lyn Spall:  "This year’s Woodbridge Regatta takes place on Sunday 23rd June, starting at 12 noon by the Tea Hut, near the Yacht Pond, with a service organised by Churches Together. Please come along and support this, enjoy the St John’s Puppet Team and raise your voices in praising God in the open air. It is such a wonderful opportunity to share Jesus with the many people in our community who may not normally attend church. Maybe you will have a conversation with someone which could change their life for ever!"
