Livestreamed Christingle Service and a message from Dave Tomlinson
The first service we streamed live on Facebook was our Christingle on Sunday 13th December! We collected candles and ribbon from the church and made Christingles in our own homes under the skillful direction of Emily, who explained the significance of every element.

What do they imply for our understanding and interpretation of scripture? Click here to watch this Zoom study session led by Dr Clare Amos looked in detail at some of the problematic passages of Joshua and Judges, and then explored the wider implications for our understanding and use of the Bible.
