Dear Church member
As a strange year draws to a close, I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your partnership during 2020 in the gospel of hope; for your prayers, for your service, and for your gifts freely offered in love of God and neighbour. Having now passed the shortest day of the year, we think not just of the hope of lengthening days, but also the sure hope of the coming of the Saviour of the world not just as a baby at Christmas, but to bring about a new age of life and light and the renewal of all things.
Please join in with our online and in-person services as you are able to over the next couple of days, and on the Sundays following.
Communion services - due to the need for social distancing, you will need to book at place at these services here. At the time of writing, we do have plenty of space, though.
