Visitors and strangers, all comers and all ages -we welcome all.
Meeting strangers can be confusing to some people. If they come to our home, we may feel that they are trying to invade our territory, or to become our friends when we know nothing about them, do we like them can we trust them? If we visit their land or home, we may feel uncertain about how we will be received. Yet meeting strangers can help us to see things in a new light, they ask questions which make us think in new ways.
Come and meet us with your questions!
