On Saturday 20th May, there will be celebrations taking place at All Souls in honour of the church's 90th birthday. This is a free event with refreshments available during the day. Our team will be putting on a demonstration at 1pm as part of the event. Come and see us in action!
For students who would like to help: please wear your white dobok & belt if possible, or your black t-shirt and training bottoms (if you don't have either of those, you're still welcome to come along). Please arrive by 12.45pm (in the church itself, not the church hall) so we can get organised!
