Fellowship update:

We continue to thank God that the church has been able to be open for Sunday morning services over the past month. We always give due attention to safe social distancing and sanitising gel, and it’s great that some of us are able to meet physically, and others by You Tube and/or zoom. Sadly, we’re still not supposed to be singing, even with masks on. For members and other baptised friends able to join us at the chapel, we will be sharing communion together on 2nd May.

Evening services for the moment continue via zoom only. Please join us if you can, one way or the other.

(Just a reminder regarding Communion, otherwise called The Lord’s Supper – it’s for all church members and baptized believers who love the Lord Jesus in sincerity and truth. A series of Baptismal instruction classes are continuing, and in May these will be on Sundays 2nd ,16th & 30th 5-6pm on zoom. If you have not yet been baptized by immersion, please contact Calix if you wish to consider baptism and church membership, or if you have questions about what being a Christian is.
