Sunday 3rd October - a New Season

Our service today will include communion but will NOT be livestreamed as those who know how to do it are away at the moment. Youth and Children's work will be happening and Jessica will be preaching on Mark 11. How are you getting on with our series on Mark? Feel free to respond.

Nigel and I will be returning to be based in the church office from Monday, though I will continue to have every Wednesday working from home in Toftwood

May God bless you all richly,

Much love,
