Most of our churches have now resumed congregational worship - see individual pages under "Our Churches" for details. (As Ambleside Parish Centre is not yet available for our use, click the link for the latest information.)
Social distancing will be in place at all services and people will be expected to wear masks. For more details about arrangements, see individual church pages. Click for the current preaching plan.
Meanwhile, we continue the ways of sharing in worship used last year; many useful links can be found on the "Thoughts for Sunday" page, which is being updated frequently.
This page will be updated as the situation changes. If you come here often - which is great - click Refresh in your browser or press the F5 key to ensure you see all the updates.
