During the Covid-19 emergency each week we'll hold a service as a live interactive meeting using the Zoom online conference facility.
Advance details will be on the Conference Page
We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month. If you'd like to join in the communion part of the service, you could supply yourself with bread and wine, or suitable alternatives such as a biscuit and fruit juice.
A recording will be posted on this page following the live session - it may take some time for that to happen, during which time a blank screen will appear. For copyright reasons the songs and music will be listed as separate YouTube clips.
There were some technical problems during the service, so the recording has some interruptions to the picture. Our apologies.
This week's recording will appear below. If it's not there check back later.

You can pause the video above while you watch the song and then restart the video.
Hymn: To God be the glory
To God be the glory,
O perfect redemption,
Great things he has taught us,
Frances van Alstyne (1820-1915)
We watched the following video from The Bible Society
35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and his companions hunted for him. 37 When they found him, they said to him, ‘Everyone is searching for you.’ 38 He answered, ‘Let us go on to the neighbouring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do.’ 39 And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.
40 A leper came to him begging him, and kneeling he said to him, ‘If you choose, you can make me clean.’ 41 Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, ‘I do choose. Be made clean!’ 42 Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. 43 After sternly warning him he sent him away at once, 44 saying to him, ‘See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.’ 45 But he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the word, so that Jesus could no longer go into a town openly, but stayed out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.
Whilst praying we looked at some photos (opens in a new window. Close window after prayer): https://photos.app.goo.gl/wyKyydas65AitZyT7
Song: Beauty for brokenness
Beauty for brokenness
Shelter for fragile lives
Refuge from cruel wars
Rest for the ravaged earth
Lighten our darkness
