Matt W will bring the Word from Mark 10: 32-45; music is led by Nancy.

The Priory Street services will include the baptisms of some of our young people – Grace at the 9.15am and Mitch and Miriam at the 11.15am. Please pray for them as they take this step of public confession of their faith in Christ.

COTG will be sharing communion this Sunday. Please bring your own bread and something to represent the blood of Christ (e.g. grape juice, red squash, non-alcoholic wine) as we will not be serving from the front in order to reduce the risk of COVID transmission. As an act of grace towards one another, and on the basis that we would not want to do anything to cause a brother or sister to stumble, please do not bring alcoholic wine.
