We will still worship as a parish family. We encourage you to check out our worship services and programmes online on Facebook and YouTube.

God of glory, you nourish us with your Word who is the bread of life: fill us with your Holy Spirit that through us the light of your glory may shine in all the world. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
