First Sunday in Lent 6th March 2022 10.30am

Morning Worship Led by Revd Lucy Brierley and Andrew Ollerton

The Bible – A story that makes sense of life

Andrew Ollerton Works with The Bible Society and is the creator of the Bible Course


The Church is fitted with a loop system.  The words of hymns and songs, and Bible readings etc are displayed on the screen.  As the Service is live streamed you (and / or your family) could be on camera as efforts are made to help those watching at home to feel a part of the worshipping congregation in the Church, if you have any concerns regarding this please speak to an elder or welcomer.

Please wear your mask while singing, unless medically exempt, and while walking around the building and when close to others who may feel more comfortable if you do.  When seated you may prefer to remove it.
