Sunday Service – 24 May 2020

On Thursday 21 May we celebrated Ascension Day along with the church around the world. The theme of Ascension continues today as we worship together and as we meet online via Zoom at 10.30am. Today’s Service Sheet will have been received by email or through your door yesterday, but you can also download it here.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Hopefully you are enjoying watching the first two episodes of the series Living in The Time of Jesus about life first-century Palestine. The third episode is now available online, and you can catch up with all the episodes by clicking the links below. There are some similarities but many differences between the world we know today and the world as it was 2000 years ago when Jesus called those first disciples to follow him. Highly recommended.
