Welcome everyone! Please find the link to this week's service here and various notices below - including the answers to last week's Valentine's Quiz!
In case you're wondering if we've forgotten about our young people this week, we haven't! You'll find their presentations after the sermon and closing songs. If you go to our channel on YouTube ("Hayling Island Baptist Church") you will find time stamps under the service and you can click on the ones for the children's sections beneath to jump to their segments.
A huge church family cheer and congratulations to Sarah and David Smith on their golden wedding anniversary on Saturday 20 February.
Sending you all our love and prayers.
Perhaps we can save up all the anniversarys and momentous occasions for a time when we can all come together again and have one massive party!
