I need ideas for an after lunch speaker/entertainer for adults. It really needs to contain some form of Christian message – preferably a Christmas message as it’ll be our Christmas lunch.
Due to ill health my initial plan has fallen through. I then attempted some others but due to lateness of booking they have been either booked or busy or working.
