This is Mothering Sunday and the fourth in our sermon series. The theme today is Mission. Each week’s sermon includes practical points for how to implement what we have heard. These together should help us form a Rule of Life. On Wednesday evenings at 8.00 pm we will explore the previous Sunday’s theme in more detail at a weekly Zoom meeting. It will provide an opportunity for questions and further discussion.


The usual Zoom after church meeting will take place this morning after the service from about 12.15 pm.
