GREETINGS WEST VIEW!
Along with the change of season bringing us beautiful warm weather, we have planned some exciting opportunities for us to connect as a community during the month of October. Here are some of these activities
Next Sunday 2 October we will be joining together with all ages for Community worship at the 10am service and we encourage you to bring the whole family to this service and experience worship as a family. This is also a wonderful opportunity to invite a friend to Church.
