back to church season

We hope you’ll join us for our “Back to Church” Season

Back To Church Season

Over the last 18 months we have all been keeping our distance and in the case of coming to church many have felt it best to enjoy church from home joining the Zoom church or watching the service online.

As we emerge from the restrictions, we would like to invite people to come back to join us in church. The “Back to Church Season” gives us an opportunity to invite people to come and join us, to “come and see”. There are some seasonal services that lend themselves to this kind of invitation: Harvest, All Souls, Remembrance, Shoe Box Sunday and of course in December the Carol services.

So if you haven’t been before or for a while, why not come along?

Or think of who you would like to invite and ask them: “Would you like to…?” “Would you mind…?” “Why not come…?”

Look out for the invitation cards and the flyers in church.
