CHRISTMAS 2020

It’s been a year of the big Traditions and Community Events being cancelled and we all feel the loss of them. But this Christmas the Song of Love from God to all will be heard in our homes instead of our churches. The technological marvels of telephone and internet will help keep us connected to some degree to those we love and miss. And in the silence of your own hearts listen for the cry of the tiny babe who calls to you and tells you that you are known and loved by the God who took the risk to become like one of us.

Our online service schedule is as follows. Here’s the link to our Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBJWnVdX-uBIA5adMm8-pQg

There is a host of other online services that you can access too, that will be well produced with music and carols and all the trimmings – something that we just can’t offer in our small setup I’m afraid.
