Newsletter 7 February

I hope you are well and was glad to hear that some of you enjoyed a catch up on Zoom earlier in the week, I was sorry not to be able to join you but I am working more or less as normal!

Reflections from Rev Sue

Some thoughts from Sue are attached along with an order of service which you might like to use during this lockdown.  The order of service includes a couple of songs.  If it helps to listen along you can find them here:
