George Ellis on organ led the congregational singing. The hymns were, �Come ye thankful people come�, �For the beauty of the earth�, �Fountain of mercy, God of love� and �How great thou art�.

The Rev William Henry led the service and welcomed the congregation, the choir and all visitors. In his address based on Hosea 10 v 10-15, he spoke that while there is an importance of being content with what we have and giving God thanks for our many blessings, there is a danger of being overly content even spiritually! He emphasising the need to give God the central place in our lives explaining that God wants us to give our all because He gave His all for us, so freely on the cross.

The service was followed by a harvest supper in the church hall.
