Hi John,
For the first three that came to my attention, I can't remember what they were about. The most recent (last Sunday) was an enactment of the infant Jesus being presented at the temple to Simeon. I didn't see anything unscriptural regarding the content, but I was suspicious because of its style and when I got home, I checked it out and sure enough it was from The LDS.
 The minister simply said that she was on the case when I had previously challenged her about it and I took her at her word. But clearly the problem has not gone away.

Re email, I did email the minister initially about as well as another minister on the circuit and neither replied. When I mentioned this, she told me that she had not received my email, so while I agree in principle that this is a good way forward, I doubt the email would ever be received.

I have my suspicions as to what the source of all this is.

I think I will chat to some of the regulars after the service one Sunday and see what they make of it.
To all of you here who have replied, thanks for your input. It is good to know what my fellow Christians think about these matters.

UPDATE:

I have emailed the minister expressing my concerns. I got a reply in which she told me she had watched last Sunday's video before the service and didn't see any Mormon accreditation (that's because there was none) and she apologised for any offence caused. Now for me, causing offence really isn't the issue. She completely ignored my questions, such as - what is your view of mixing Christianity with other faiths?

For the time being, I do not feel entirely comfortable about continuing to receive holy communion at the same church.

"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent?s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.? 2 Cor 11:3-4
