Lent & Easter 2021

Renew. Reflect. Refresh

The season of Lent doesn't need to be a time of despair. Come discover how our Christian spirituality provides Refreshment in a time of hardship, Reflection in a time of anxiety, Renewal in a time of uncertainty.  This Lent, come Renew, Reflect, and Refresh.

At the moment our church buildings are closed. But church is far more than a building, and our community of love carries on — including our daily online worship.
