Worship Resources available while the Church is closed.


While our church building is closed for all activities we are we are highlighting some of the many opportunities for worship with a focus on those that are easily available knowing those with internet access 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 to the best of our knowledge it was accurate when compiled but it may change so please check the programme schedules on the day. If you are struggling to find what you are looking please contact Stephen 01772 683 884 0r 07711917955 stephen.heath@churchrdmethodist.org.uk or Judith 01253 720986 jp.smith185@btinternet.com
