Please note that Sunday services in Church have now resumed and will take place at 4pm, alternating between Communion and Evening Worship services. Weekly midweek services have also started again at their usual time of 10am on Thursdays (in the New Church). For Sunday services in church, the EventBrite booking system has been set up again –

For families

We are really excited to be able to meet on Zoom every Sunday morning, where we are exploring God and faith together. This is an interactive meeting which lasts around 30 minutes. If you would like to find out more information or would like the zoom details for the meeting please don't hesitate to contact Lucy here

 

For all

All are very welcome at the weekly Zoom services. On Sundays at 10 am we typically have around 40-50 separate households connected, and for most of the time we're all looking at slides showing the words of the service, so it's easy to 'slip in at the back'! Where possible, we do ask that you keep your camera on, at least initially, for security purposes.
