Please join us for worship on Sunday, December 13 at 10.00 am, the Third Sunday in Advent. Our readings are Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24, and John 1:6-8,19-28. I will be celebrant and Rev. Dr. Mark Lee our preacher. The order of service is here.
Later today at 5.00 pm we also have our beautiful service of Nine Lessons and Carols. All places are now taken for this service, but you can still join online – see below – and the bulletin is here.
You can join both of our worship services either in church, or live online (via Facebook Live). You should be able to go straight to the Livestream using this link (even if you do not have a Facebook account – just ignore any attempts to make you register)! Should that not work, please go to our Facebook page here and scroll down until you find the Livestream, which we will start at 9.45 am (the service will start at the usual time of 10.00 am) and at 16.45 (for 17.00) for the Nine Lessons & Carols.
If you want to include prayers for yourself or another during the Prayers of the People at any of our services, please send an email

There will be no flower dedications during Advent, instead a special collection is made for the Christmas Flowers. You are invited to make a donation, however small, towards the cost. There are special Christmas Donation envelopes (on the notice board at the back of the church). Please fill in your name and place in the collection plate.
Our virtual Advent Calendar is complete. Thank you to everyone who contributed, to Monika for the idea and organisation, and to Robert for the realisation. You will find the calendar on our home page. All the doors are still closed of course, but beginning Monday you can click on the numbered days as they become available each day through the Advent season to view the picture/drawing/text that for one of us stands for or is part of this season!
