Church Family News
We send our love and congratulations to Sam Ould who was confirmed and received into membership of the Methodist church at a memorable service at West Town, Backwell on September 10th. Sam, who is now 15, also attended Messy Church at Nailsea for many years with sister Amelia and parents Sarah and John. At the service Sam spoke of his decision to become a follower of Jesus ‘in my own right’. The service was followed by a celebratory lunch with friends from both churches.
