We are now at Orange under the traffic light system - have a look at our latest update, which remains unchanged. There are now no gathering limits, but we still need to keep our masks on in church and make sure spaces are well ventilated. Communion can be held in both kinds, but there is no compulsion to do so.

Bosco Peters has posted some resources for Palm Sunday and Holy week. This includes prayers, a video reflection and other resources for the week.

Little Things with Great Love: This song was written by Audrey Assad, with additional lyrics and melody by Isaac Wardell and Madison Cunningham. It is a meditation on the words of Mother Teresa "God does not call us all to great things, but calls us to do small things with great love." You may like to use it as part of your reflections for Maundy-Thursday and Good Friday.
