We are encouraged that we are remaining connected as church during these challenging times of lockdown. It is wonderful that so many people are joining us for our livestream worship at the time or later, and it’s positive news that we are now able to tentatively return to worshipping in our church building.
If you would like any help with how to use Facebook, YouTube or Zoom, please contact our Churchwarden, Michael.
And if you are not receiving the weekly emails and would like to, please let Margaret know and she can add you to the list.
‘Difference’ is a five-session course that explores what it means to follow Jesus in the face of conflict and see transformation through everyday encounters.
We are looking at the course in our Sunday online worship and Connect Groups over September and October.
Some Connect Groups meet in real life with no more than six people and other groups are meeting via Zoom. Please think about joining a group for the Difference Course which helps us to explore what it means to follow Jesus in the face of the complex and conflicted world we live in.
If you would like to join a group, please contact Margaret.
