During these unprecedented times when all public worship has been suspended by the Archbishops and church buildings are closed we, the church, have had to explore other ways of doing and being church.
Across the country, and the world, churches are livestreaming services on Sundays, we are holding our virtual services on Zoom - if you would like to join us please email the Parish Office for more details. There are also lots of resources for during the week, not just Sunday mornings. Some resources that you might like to explore are radio stations, podcasts, TV and worship music on YouTube.
