Virtual Services are becoming the norm, at the moment!!

For the third Sunday of Easter, St Mary’s Church again had a “Virtual Service” led by Reader Simon Gutteridge, a get together, from our homes using a meeting application called ZOOM. This week our service was joined by more people and we had 21 connections and 33 people taking part.
