Sunday 28 June 

Welcome to our online service this morning. We hope that whoever you are, wherever you are and however you feel as you log-on, the content below will inspire and refresh you as we come before God in prayer and praise and to hear him speak to us through his word the Bible.

Lockdown easing update: In light of the announcement this week that places of worship are to be allowed to re-open next month, we are beginning to plan what this might look like here at Stanmore Chapel.
