Zoom Fellowship Groups

Everyone on Zoom is welcome to join a small group for fellowship and conversation.

InPerson departure:

Please leave one row at a time starting from the front, waiting for the people sitting in front of you to leave first.  Please do not come forward to greet those leading the service.  Use the side exit and stairs and leave through the side door downstairs. If you requires the lift, turn right through the flower room at the top of the stairs and one of the stewards will assist you. Please do not go into any other areas of the building or gather to chat either inside or just outside the building.

Go renewed to serve God!
