Sunday Service 3rd January
We are into the new year and the fortieth week of our online services in the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. As we are in tier 4 in Essex and there have been increasing numbers of new cases of the virus the church is closed and the service will again be online only. This week Fran is leading, the service is being live streamed and you can join in by clicking the video link below. Alison's Bible story time for younger children continues with another look at the story of Joseph. View that any time on this page below the service.If you didn't see our last Sunday service and would like to catch up, you can see it here. Links to all the services including the 'Christmas specials' are also on the Listen Again page.
Don't forget, you can also take a look at last week's service again to see what comments have been left and to respond to them where appropriate.
If you would like to contribute an item for next week's service or for another week contact Alison or leave a message in the comments below. We will be continuing with our online services, as well as in church when we can, for the foreseeable future, and it would be good to get as many of you involved as possible.
Join us live online at 10am. We will leave the recorded service here so you can watch it later if you woke up too late to join us live!
The service is expected to follow the order below but may change at the last minute!
Fran will be leading in all the songs today, so please join in and sing with her.
