First Steps in Reopening Buildings
From 20 July, we will begin to reopen our buildings for Hirers and for those who need to enter to conduct essential business of the church.
We are preparing the spaces, providing cleaning protocols and supplies, and doing all we can to minimise the risk of transmission of the Covid-19 virus. Here is a our Safety Plan.
Our congregation continues to worship online, and connect through the worship reflection groups on Zoom. All are welcome to participate.
Project Reconnect has been providing Worship Resources to small congregations since 2004. This includes a video message and discussion questions.
These message and discussion questions are now freely available online here.
Please use and share!
Spiritual Direction is continuing during the Covid-19 crisis. Please contact Rev Tom Stuart
What is Spiritual Direction?
The practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their relationship with the divine, or to learn and grow in their own personal spirituality.
How could Spiritual Direction help me?
Perhaps you have a feeling of being adrift in life and desire to experience greater meaning and direction. Spiritual Directions sessions may be helpful in providing space for you to tell your story in order to explore meaning in every area of your life.
