Covid19 Latest Update July 2021
We are back in our building!
We are now holding our weekly Sunday morning services back in the building. However, for those who are unable to attend the services we will be continuing to stream them live on YouTube. Even though the government has now ended all compulsory regulations, out of a care and concern for those who still feel vulnerable we are continuing to provide Covid19 safety measures where possible. To assist us with this please continue to book your free ticket(s) for our services on Eventbrite via the blue button below. Thank you
We are continuing to broadcast via YouTube which has no restrictions on numbers or location! Please click on the red button below to view our You Tube channel in a new page
If you know of someone who does not have internet facilities but would like to receive either a weekly DVD or CD of our services, please contact us by clicking here to be taken to the contact page on this website. Thank you.

To comply with government restrictions during the pandemic all our regular activities were suspended. Following the lifting of some restrictions we have been running our Free Babees support group for expectant and new parents with non mobile babies, with two different sessions on either a Thursday morning or afternoon. To book your place at the last sessions of the term please click on the blue buttons below. Please watch this space for next terms plans!
For other activities our leadership will continue to consider the most appropriate and safest way & time to re-open, together with any appropriate measures required to keep everyone as safe as possible and in accordance with current regulations and guidelines. Please continue to watch this space for further updates about our activities!
