The Fourth Sunday of Advent

Dear reader
We hope you are managing to keep warm in this very cold weather. The church will be a bit warmer on Sunday morning however, because the heating is going on overnight, so do join us for the morning service. And especially for families, don't forget there is Sunday Club!
INFORMATION: we heard on Tuesday that one of the helpers at the Christmas market on Sunday has tested positive for Covid.
Sunday 18 December: 10:30 am: Holy Communion
and Sunday Club
And a baptism: welcome Molly!
