Morning Worship
Led by Revd Lucy Brierley

Back to the Bible – Jesus and the Kingdom


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 continue to wear your mask, unless medically exempt, throughout the Service and while in other parts of the building.
