This week John Hall took us through the shortest chapter in the Bible, Psalm 117, and encouraged us to hold these verses of hope in our hearts during these dark times.
Dear Church family,
This week we are looking at Mark 6:1-13 where Jesus is rejected even amongst his hometown and so he sends out the Twelve. John and Emma Thurl will be telling us what lockdown has been like for them along with the bible reading. John Hall will be preaching and Kirsty will be leading us in our prayers.
