Our main services are normally what is called Eucharistic… that means we share blessed or consecrated bread and wine. Everybody is welcome to take part and whilst we are online we invite you to bring your own bread and wine or food and drink as we worship together… What we cannot guarantee are chocolate free Easter eggs .. though just tell a welcomer if you or your children are lactose intolerant and we’ll make sure nobody is left out.
