The website Bible Gateway enables you to see any of the readings on line, and in any of 50 languages. In church, we use the NIV (UK) version.
The church calendar is on our website, and all the services and readings are shown there.

Please note

  • This Sunday, 2 December, we welcome Bishop Robert who will be presiding at the Service of Confirmation.
  • It's also the first Sunday in Advent. And because the 10:30 service is a Service of Confirmation, with Holy Communion, there will be no 9:15 service this week.
  • As we mentioned before, there will be no church lunch in December, nor in January, because of the works.
  • After the morning service, there will be coffee and tea and a chance to meet the Bishop but this will take place in the aumônerie, over the road. With many thanks to Soeur Estelle for welcoming us while we can't use the hall.
  • A new sermon series begins at the evening service, the theme is "The Light of the World

A reminder about heating works in the Church hall

Works start on 3 December and should last about 2 months.
  • There will be no access to the hall and kitchen during that time, but the lavatories will be accessible.
  • Anything needed in the hall or kitchen (for example, for Christmas) must be collected by 2 December.
  • The children's area/café area at the back of the church will be used to store some items and will not be available for your children until we can put everything away again when the works are finished. Sorry, but there's just no room and the area will not be safe for children.
