Keeping in touch The pew leaflet can be emailed or delivered to anyone who would like a copy – please tell Sarah if you know someone who wants to receive it.

 

Church buildings NOT open for private prayer

Sadly, due to the ‘lockdown’ restrictions, we are not allowed to open our churches. However we can continue to be the church: to pray in our homes and to demonstrate God’s love and care to those around us, especially the vulnerable – who can you phone to cheer and encourage today?
