SUNDAY WORSHIP AT CALDY VALLEY SUSPENDED
While public worship is permitted under lockdown regulations, the Diaconate have decided that in the light of the current situation it would be safer not to hold Sunday services at church for the time being. We are sharing online Sunday worship on Zoom with friends from other local Methodist and United Reformed Churches.
To receive the weekly Zoom link please email: email@example.com
