Regeneration the DVD

Alan Jones is gathering material for a DVD which records the history of the church, the fire and the restoration and up to the reopening of the church. It is hoped to film as many future fund raising efforts for the restoration as possible. All proceeds from the DVD will go to the Restoration Fund.

Alan is still looking for photos and film of the church and its activities from the past-especially pre World War II. Also pictures of Sunday School are of internet. Specially, does anyone have a photograph of the Rev. Laurie Parsons and the Rev. Blount?

If you have any media or if you are organising an event, please contact Alan on wrajones@btinternet.com. Great care will be taken with your memorabilia.

If you would like to be kept informed about progress, your details can be put on sheets available at services in the future. This will not commit you to buying a copy of the DVD but will give some idea of the interest.
