We are pre-recording it tomorrow & Jessica will send out the link on Saturday. Thanks, Jessica!
On Sunday, we encourage those of you who feel comfortable, to gather together with others in one another’s homes for Church online and fellowship face to face.
If you are not gathered with others you may like to join us on Zoom for Prayer rooms & fellowship at the conclusion of the YOUTUBE service. If so, click on this link when the service ends:

The pathway to reopening Church services has been a challenging one and we aren’t quite there yet! We know everyone has a view on vaccines, and many want to be heard, plus the government and diocesan guidelines change daily!
Our utmost goal is to hold to the gospel message that God loves and welcomes us all whether we are vaccinated or not. Thus, we are seeking to reopen church services with all these things in mind; knowing we can’t please everyone all the time, and at the same time doing our best to pastorally care for all in our congregation. Please know you are all loved and valued regardless of vaccination status’ and views on the matter.
We have some ideas of what services we would like to plan as we reopen so we ask you to please click HERE to open the form and let us know what service you are interested in attending next weekend and for the month of November. (Note: these are temporary plans which will change with restrictions by the end of November).
We are also considering adding a Tuesday midday weekly Eucharist on November 16, 23 and 30. Please reply email directly if this is of interest to you as it’s not on the form.
Your input will help with planning which services to run with. Thank you for your input and feedback.
