All are welcome. If you feel more comfortable, you are certainly welcome to wear a mask but we are no longer requiring them to be worn.

We invite you to stay and enjoy coffee, tea and conversation after the service. In inclement weather there is space at the back of the church, but with warm weather we encourage people to gather outside the church doors.

Bible Studies and Discussion Groups

We are currently offering an online course “Being aware of God’s love in my life” It is more reflective and prayerful than the courses we have been doing. It involves some private guided bible study, prayer and meditation over a period of five weeks using material which will be distributed. We come together in the weekly joint session to share our experiences. The first session is a general introduction and takes place on Thursday 3 November from 20.00 to 21.30 hrs. The following five sessions are on subsequent Thursday evenings up to 8 December.
