Please note that this month’s Gathered to Praise evening has been cancelled. The next Praise evening is planned for Sunday 20th February.


Over these last two years, especially when we weren’t able to meet in person, many of you have chosen to give your offerings to the church via online banking. We appreciate that this method doesn’t suit everyone and that some prefer to put their gifts into the offering box at a Sunday or Wednesday service. We have two packs of blue offering envelopes available for use in 2022 – the packs comprise envelopes that are dated for each Sunday of the year, to help you incorporate giving into your regular worship. Please contact Ruth in the church office if you would like to receive one of these packs.

Tech Tales – update by Ben R

Right now we’re in the middle of refreshing some of the tech and PA equipment that we use for services and other events. New radio mics are in use and you may have noticed a new computer up on the balcony. This is part of a plan to remove the projection of song words out of the rather complex streaming set-up and make it more accessible to all congregation members. We will be replacing the old software we used for projection with OpenLP which operates in a very similar fashion but has a number of advantages. We will be running OpenLP training early in February, details and dates to follow. We would like to encourage you to serve your congregation by attending the training and volunteering to operate the word projection for their service.
