Services in church along with so many other churches we have reluctantly suspended our services in church. However the church is alive! Our pastoral work is continuing as we are more and more available to the needs of our community. The church is open each day for private prayer and our livestreams continue. At this time it is a privilege to serve Jesus in the different ways He is calling each of us to be His church in which we all play a part.
31st January we celebrate Jesus’ Presentation in the Temple (Canndlemas). We hope to celebrate with candles and light. Details soon.
