Welcome to our virtual worship service for Sunday, November 29, the first Sunday of Advent

Thank you for sharing this service with us, whether you're joining us at 10:30am on Sunday, or watching later in the week. If you are joining us and would like to know more about our church, please email our Church Secretary to make contact - we'd love to hear from you.

Below you'll find the series of items which comprise our service. Please progress through them at your own pace by clicking on the 'play' arrows when you are ready to proceed.

The readings are 1 Romans 5.1-8, and Matthew 12.14-21. Advent Ring

As we are unable to enjoy a communal Advent Ring this year, we invite you to bring your own candle to light at the appropriate moment near the start of the service. (Do make sure it is supported firmly in a safe place, though!)

You can enlarge the videos and songs to fill your screen by clicking on the 'Full-screen' icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video. To return to normal display, click on the 'Exit full-screen' or press the Esc key on your keyboard.

(When you click to play a song, a new window may open for YouTube. When the song ends, close the window and return to this page.)
