Sunday Morning Service at 10.30 am
Welcome to our online service for Sunday 29th November, Advent Sunday, which is led by Gareth.
You are invited to have a bit of bread and a drop of wine or juice for the Communion and a candle to light for the prayers.
As usual, it will become public at 10.30 and continue to be available thereafter.
The Junior Church activity is available here.
Julia and Zac made lovely pictures to show what their talents are:
One of Zac's talents is mud - one of his mum's talents is washing!
Thank you for your pictures, Zac and Julia!
Live Worship at St Andrew's Psalter Lane Church
We are delighted to announce that we will soon be open for live worship again!
There will be a service at 4.00 pm on Sunday 6th December
Due to social distancing, the number of people will be limited, so please book here, or call 0114 2584164 and leave your name and telephone number and the number of people coming.
There is a Zoom service at 11.00 am every Wednesday. The format of the service is readings with pauses, a led meditation, a psalm and prayer, with some music at the beginning and the end. There will be some time for conversation together at the end. Many thanks to Imogen for organising this service.
Unfortunately you can no longer join the service by phone to listen and speak without being on a computer - this feature has been removed for the time being because of increased demand. One way round this would be for someone to have a phone open on speaker setting so that you could listen in to the service that way. If you would like to do this please contact Janet Loughridge (258 4164).
The links to the Zoom meeting will be sent in a separate email message on Tuesday.
So why not join the Wednesday service as well as one on Sunday?
We will also be holding Taizé Prayer for Advent at 7.00 pm on Zoom every Wednesday until Christmas
