« on: June 02, 2011, 02:36:02 PM »
I spent a lot of my teenage years in this church made a lot of friends. Where are they now ? Rev Henry was the first minister I  remember. Then a long time after we had the Rev B W Stohhart he came from England  his wife was called Vera. It was during this time I became a Deacon. we had some great times then taking the kids to Southport if you new me let me know love to here of your memories.
