Our building maybe shut but the church is very much alive and active!

During the time of lockdown our church has moved online, including producing socially distanced (ie from their own homes!) songs. We have also been active in using our building frontage to convey messages of support to our community, (as you can see from the middle video). If you would like to see more photos please take a look at our photo gallery, under the “About Us” menu option.
