Worship at The Square

Following our long period of closure due to Covid, we have started to re-open the church buildings for worship, and most of our services are now conducted live in church. Most of these are now also live streamed on YouTube, so you can join in online if you can't make it in person. See our Worship This Week page for up to date information.

We also have a page dedicated to resources to help you in your worship at home. Click Worship then Worship This Week on the menus above.
