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 11 am.
