Virtual Church 2021
We are now meeting in person on Sundays again... with all the obligatory restrictions. Visitors, please contact us in advance to reserve a place. (See the notice on the front page.) Thank you
For those unable to join us, please see the Service recordings 2021 page.
Songs in our repertoire that are hard/impossible to find on the Web are slowly being added to the 4Today Youtube channel. For Holy Week, Behold His Love has just been added.
Weekly newsletters are emailed (or, in a few cases, posted) to fellowship members, and will no longer be loaded to the website. Newsletters from the first lockdown can still be found on the Fellowship page, along with other lockdown message/resources.
For those attending the gathered Sunday service (when not on lockdown), guidance on Covid-19 precautions can also be found there.
'A song for today' gives you a new song to listen to and reflect on every day. Do take a look >>
