Prayer for Sunday
“From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised!”
Lord, thank you for the long days of summer and all the good things you provide for us. Would you bless all who are going on holiday in the coming days; giving respite from work and study. We also ask your help for those who are in need at this time, both in our own country, and in Afghanistan and Ukraine. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Latest Livestreamed Service
'We are looking to recruit a Treasurer for our church as soon as possible. If you, or anyone else you know might be interested then please contact Rev Jade on firstname.lastname@example.org'
We are delighted that we are again allowed to open the church for worship. Numbers are no longer restricted and there is no requirement to book in advance. We will, however, still require your contact details for Test and Protect and that you wear a face mask.
Whatsmore, we can, once again, offer tea/coffee after the service at the Carswell Centre...a great chance to catch up with one another. We hope to see you there sometime soon.
We have installed new Audio Visual equipment to allow the Live Streaming of our church services. You can see our current and previous livestreams and videos on our YouTube channel. Unfortunately, the livestream is susceptible to outages, due to signal strength through the thick walls of the church. On the rare occasions where the service is lost on a Sunday morning, please wait whilst we try and re-connect. If all else fails please try again in the evening, by which time we will have uploaded a copy of the service.
For those of you who use Facebook please visit the church page regularly for additional information.
