Worship at Home

This information was drawn together to help our congregation during the Covid lockdown.

It is still sometimes useful to be able to draw upon these resources, perhaps when we are unable to attend church, or we would like a little help in focusing our prayers during the week.

Going for Growth from the Church of England
Faith isn’t something to be learned in church – it’s to be lived out at home. But it isn’t always easy for families to know how to pray together or tell the stories of Jesus together.
