The Sunday worship service at the Middlefield Federated Church is listed incorrectly. We will be having a brief service of carols and prayers at 11am followed by a community wide brunch at 11:30. All are welcome to join us.

Thanks for the correction Elizabeth. The information was originally pulled from the church's website, but it must not have been updated yet. Merry Christmas.
