Worship & Services
While we cannot join together in common worship, we can and we must continue to worship together during these difficult times. We have the opportunity to worship together in our homes by joining in the services that are broadcast regularly on television, radio and over the internet.
In order to help with this, please find below a schedule of radio and television broadcasts, as well as other useful links to support you in your worship. These will be updated regularly as more information becomes available.
