A Diocesan-wide service

One thing we have learnt during the difficult time of this pandemic is that we can meet together in different ways. Our Diocese is spread over several countries but how wonderful to be able to join together for an Advent service; it's something we might not have done before, but please. join in if you can, it's gong to be a joyful occasion, including choirs from around the diocese.
