TODAY - CARING AND SHARING
The "Caring and Sharing" tin is on the font, for any donations. We support two schemes, the "Steve Willis memorial fund", and the "Feeding Programme in Honduras". Caring and Sharing magazines are in the church, which give more information.
CHRISTMAS DAY SERVICE
We have decided not to have a formal booking system for the Christmas Day service. However, if regular members of the congregation, who intend to attend, could sign the list at the back of the church, Please let us know whether you are bringing anyone else in your ‘Christmas Bubble’ who would be able to sit with you. Numbers will be limited and, if we reach capacity, we will, reluctantly, have to turn people away. So come early!
We will also be recording a service of lessons and carols on YouTube, which will also be available on this website, so that those who are unable to come to church at Christmas can still celebrate with us.

Canon Dr Peter Sills - "Hope under Covid"
Peter Sills's latest book, "Light in the Darkness", offers a considered Christian response to the ideas that shape modern life. It is written both for thoughtful Christians and for those, who, while not expressing a Christian commitment, are open to the insights that faith offers in response to the challenges we face in the contemporary world. If you would like to come to these meetings, please email email@example.com to obtain joining instructions.
