Is Penzance the beginning or the end of the line? Yes it depends where you’re starting from!.......BUT……….

It could well be the beginning of something new for you. Wondering what to do next? Taking a year out? Not sure where God is calling you? Then maybe this opportunity could be for you.

Playzone  - Reaching out into our community, this is our new structure in one of our 4 churches.
