We are back!

By dan.copperwheat, on Friday, May 31, 2013

Woodside Church spent the weekend away at the Catalyst festival this bank holiday. What a great time we had…a mixture of weather but it did not dampen our spirits!

There will be a full review shortly but for now we want to say a big thank you to the festival team. In particular, we want to thank Woodside’s very own Jo Hearn for the fantastic children’s work that blessed so many and also to Luke Clements for the sports and youth work. Also Hannah King serve through-out the week in the youth. Thank you to those that served throughout the week. Great job guys! Well done.

Woodside will return to meeting this Sunday 2.06.13 at 9:00am and 11:00am. Join us for our new sermons series: Building the City of God.
