BART Group of Churches
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship in our church buildings is suspended until further notice. However, whilst our buildings are closed we continue to worship in our own homes. We will post an online worship service here each Sunday, so that we can join together in worship from home.
The video will be available from 9am on Sunday

Attached is a link to a song which Hugh wrote whilst having chemotherapy on Tuesday and which was recorded yesterday. He would be
very happy for it to be shared as appropriate. The tune is from a song written
by his grandfather during the Second World War.
