What's on

On this page:   Worship | Square Groups | Other Square Events | External Events | Forward Planning


The Weekly Notice Sheet is handed out on Sundays, with news of what is happening at The Square. 
If you would like to receive it by email or send news to be included, please email us.

You can read the latest notice sheet here, and previous sheets can be found in our archive.


Note that due to the current Covid-19 situation, all activities are somewhat restricted. Please check carefully before assuming that an event is on.


Worship at The Square

Our next service in the church will be on Sunday 27th June. This service will also be live streamed via YouTube for those who cannot, or do not wish to attend in person.

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

Reopening

Church Council have agreed to reopening the church for worship on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in June (13th and 27th). We look forward to welcoming at least some of you back!

Because we know that others of you may not as yet feel confident about returning, at least one of these services will be live streamed; where a service is not streamed, there will be a prerecorded version available. Both of these will be accessed from YouTube as we have been doing.

Please see Nina's letter for 13th June for further details.

You may also like to read this document from Ivor Mitchelmore, on his experience of joining in a live (though very limited) service.


Coffee and CakeAnd you could join others after your home worship, for a coffee or tea in your own home, through an online Zoom conference. You will need to download Zoom on your computer/laptop/phone and be ready at 11.30 am with the Meeting ID and password, which you can find in the latest Notice Sheet.
