Starting on Saturday 20th February we'll be running the Rhythm of Life Lent Course via Zoom, with sessions starting at 10.30am on a Saturday morning. This week we'll be thinking about Celebrating. The course consists of 6 sessions, each lasting around an hour and a half, with online materials, video clips, Bible passages, discussion, and prayer. This is a standalone course that can serve as a stepping stone for further engagement with the Rhythm of Life, should you so wish.
For more information about the Lent course, or to have a look at the course materials, please click here. Please note that you do not need to register on the Digital Learning Platform if you intend to join our Saturday morning group; registration is only required for the Diocese-run midweek groups. If you or someone you know might like to join the Lent Group, please get in touch and we can provide details about how to join in via Zoom or telephone.

During this difficult time, the work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, a generosity that is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it.We give to our church in a variety of ways, but with the closure of our buildings we have not been able to receive all the gifts that we usually would, so we really need your help now. If you are able to give more at this time, please click here to be directed to our online donations page.
