THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO WILL BE ATTENDING.

Service at Steane

Our final service for 2023 at Steane took place on Sunday. The cool, calm atmosphere of the chapel was most welcome, especially with the heat outside. We have welcomed and enjoyed all 6 services this year and thank the Hinton team for all their efforts in preparing the services and supplying the most welcome refreshments. We look forward to the recommencement of the services at this beautiful place in April 2024.
