We appreciate that returning to worship is not right for everyone at this time. So we continue to highlight opportunities for worship with a focus on those that are easily available, knowing people with the internet have access to a huge amount of material, far more than we can list so we have listed some of those with a local connection. Please note this offer changes and updates more regularly than we can keep up with so please note it was accurate when compiled but it may change so please check the programme schedules on the day.

If you have members of your church or community who aren’t online, you might want to consider printing the services sheets and other resources from our website and posting them on. You can buy stamps online. Royal Mail has advice on its service during the pandemic if you have any questions or concerns:

If you are printing and distributing these Acts of Worship please add your church’s CCLI number and add the songs to your annual report.
