Autumn Zoom meetings

As the autumnal weather kicks in, and coronavirus restrictions tighten once more, the pressures on our communities continue, and in many cases will increase.

What can Christians and churches do to help? What issues is God particularly placing on your heart to address? What expertise do you have that may be a help to others?

You are warmly invited to join our Zoom calls on alternate Wednesdays throughout the autumn. Spaces are limited, to give everyone a chance to participate, but if any event is over-subscribed, we may be able to repeat it later that afternoon, so do let us know if the one you're interested in is fully booked.

Here's what we've got planned. Click the links to book your free place:
