This is the third Sunday of Lent. The theme today is Relationships. In the sermon series we are exploring key areas of discipleship. 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.


After this morning’s service there will be the usual Zoom meeting with the same link details as before sent to all on the Calry email list. Just ask if you haven’t got it and want to join in.
