Some very minor cosmetic changes have been made to our familiar Homepage.
The older, six-years old Menubar at the top of this page, along with all its many links to our website,
has been reorganised into a more prominent, visual display area and the contents are now
in alphabetical order for easier navigation and your convenience.
There are no changes to anything below this simple announcement.
Our website host, Church Edit, is planning its own changes soon to update its service to make
our own website an ever better experience.
