The Fifth Sunday in Lent, the entry into Passiontide


Following the Prime Minister's announcement on Thursday evening, we very much regret to tell you that we are closing the church as of now, and until at least 18 April.
Video services will continue, as will Mosaic evening service talks.
We are also preparing additional videos for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday.
We will of course keep you informed in the newsletter and on the website.

Services on video continue

Services on video will be available in addition to services in the church, for everyone who can't be there in person.
Links are on the homepage of our website, or you can go directly to our YouTube channel.
The latest videos are published on a Saturday evening.
Didn't catch last week's service on video? Enjoy one of the hymns from the service at this link:

Did you know - Timothy Dudley-Smith is one of the most well-known English language hymn writers. This is one of his most popular and well-loved hymns.

Mosaic Evening Services

Evening services in church are on hold for now, because of the curfew. But the team have prepared a talk for each week.
Theme for March: Game plan
“God, what should I do with my life?” Does God have a plan for each one of us? If so, what does it look like?
Like the weekly services, they are uploaded to the website on a Saturday evening, and you can find the link on our website
