“Story, Song and Celebrate” is a new service for all ages and stages of life and faith, and it hopefully describes the essence of the gathering – to hear and reflect on a Bible story, to sing* and celebrate the good news together. (*Under current Government and Church guidelines, congregations are unfortunately not permitted to sing, however we can still enjoy some music.)
