News from Nyarugenge

Marcel Sebahire in Shyogwe Diocese has sent a picture of the work in progress on the church building at Nyarugenge. This includes not only repairs to the roof but reconstruction because the church is "quite old" and to accommodate the growing congregation. The picture is on the Blue Noticeboard at the front of our church.
The latest report from Grass Roots Rwanda is also on the noticeboard and includes another picture of the work in progress on the church at Nyarugenge.

The choir would like to welcome new members. There is no requirement to be able to read music.  There must be a willingness to regularly attend choir practices. If you are interested please speak to Moira.  Choir practice is held on Mondays at 7.15 pm in the Church.
