Memories
Looking back on 2020
2020 was challenging for so many, in so many different ways, but our Church family has continued to support each other through difficult times. Whilst we know that the road ahead won't be easy and is still a little uncertain - we know that there is hope and together we will continue to get through it.

In the meantime we wanted to look back
at just some of the activities that our Church community took part in,
in addition to our online and in church services. Thank you to everyone who got involved and we hope you enjoy this snap shot of the year in our video round up!

Activities and zoom memories during lockdown
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our final Wednesday Online Social tonight and throughout the last 13 months🙏 We are sad to say goodbye but we hope to be able to announce some in-person events soon. We will continue with some virtual elements - including our Online Sunday Morning Coffee. In the meantime we wanted to share a wrap up of just a few of the events and activities we have either held or organised & promoted online - thank you to everyone who has taken part and kept our church family alive during such a tough time - and all those who have volunteered and worked so hard to make them happen ❤
