Bible Study Online
Starting this last week (13th May) we are beginning a ‘Zoom’ Bible Study looking at the previous weeks Gospel in more detail than can be contained in a sermon. All are welcome to join, if you don’t yet receive e-mail updates from Merv (firstname.lastname@example.org) please ask him to add you to the list to receive instructions on how to join. This is a long-term plan that will continue after lockdown has been eased.
