Latest updates.

30th December 2021

The New Year sees the start of a new sermon series looking at A Fresh Start. Sunday’s service looks at the words that open John’s gospel and takes as it’s theme “In the beginning…” – John 1: 1 – 3.

The service can be accessed via the latest posts.

See also the Cloth of Kindness event which starts locally on the 8th of January 2021. This is a community-led textile art project that bring the community together to embroider their thoughts and experiences of kindness on individual patches which are then stitched together.
