A quick note
1. These are listed in chronological order from oldest at the top to newest at the bottom as it is easier to add new content to the bottom rather than shuffle all of the videos down one-by-one. This may be reviewed in due course however.
2. There is a separate tab above for the most recent You Tube videos that has been recently added.

Here is all the virtual, online services that Peter Hillman has led and put together since the nation has been in lockdown in March 2020. They are all in chronological order, starting with the earliest at the top, and the most recent to have been added at the bottom. There are also two videos at the bottom explaining good hand-washing technique, which is good practice regardless of what is going on in the wider world. This applies to washing with both soap-and-water and with alcohol hand gel.
Here below is a link to the Facebook page where Pete Hillman will be live-streaming each Sunday morning at either 10:30 or 11 am.

The Christmas Story as read by the vicar:
Sunday 20th December 2020, 4th Sunday in Advent. Sadly, but understandably and with good cause, we are now in Tier 4, which means that it has been decided that we will not be meeting in person again for the short-term foreseeable future. Take care of yourselves.
