Virtual Church 2020
While the church is unable to meet together, this page will be our website's starting point for useful resources and information.
Gert's newsletters can be found on the Members' page.
Sunday Morning Service for 5th April (Palm Sunday), prepared by Gert: join in at home!
Martin has started a microsite called 'A song for today' which can be found at fortoday.org (or 4today.org). He aims to post a new song link every day whilst the interruption to normal worship continues. Do take a look >>
There are also notes for the Lenten Reflections being followed by the Beeston housegroup. (Please log in to see them.)
