Midweek Worship

There are several quiet evening service options now available for you midweek. These are a lovely chance to pray and reflect; Compline is a much loved service in the anglican tradition, arising from the monastic offices. It is a short service of about fifteen minutes for the very end of a day when we turn to rest and commit ourselves into the hand of God for the night hours. Everyone is very welcome – just “join meeting” on zoom at the appointed hour, and enter the relevant numbers.
