Worship This Week

As the impact of the Covid pandemic abates, we are starting to come together again in person. At the moment, we are mixing services held in person in the church, with pre-recorded and Zoomed services. Live services are also normally live-streamed on YouTube, so you should be able to join in, even if you don't yet feel confident to join the congregation in church.

See the details below to find out what sort of service we are running this week.

Further down the page are details of other worship resources that you may find helpful.

Past services

Where previous services have been pre-recorded or live-streamed, you can still find the recordings on our Archives page.

19 September at 10:30

We are looking forward to sharing in worship this Sunday with our new superintendent, Rev Patrick Kandeh. Patrick is lively, enthusiastic and encouraging - I think it will be an interesting service!

Thanks to Stewart Mitchemore, we did get a recording of Patrick's debut service at the Square, which you can now find on YouTube.


26 September at 10:30

This Sunday's service will be our Harvest Festival, which will be held live in church, and led by Nina Johnson.

If you plan to attend, there is no longer any need to book, however we will ask you to sign in on arrival, sanitise your hands, wear a face mask for singing if possible and sit in your household groups, socially distancing from others. Please respect everyone's right to feel comfortable and safe. Thank you.

Circumstances permitting, this service will also be live streamed, and you will be able to find it here on YouTube from around 10:25.

Offerings

If you have recently been using PayPal Pools to make donations to the church, you should be aware that our account will be closed as from the end of August. We will be finding an alterative way to do this, and will make it known once we know what we're doing. Many thanks to those who have contributed.

Come And Meet Each Other (CAMEO)
While we've not been in church, we have been running CAMEO via Zoom. But for the rest of September, we will be in church for in-person worship together, so there will be NO CAMEO.

Come and 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 can be found in the latest Notice Sheet.
