The Church Year

We are following the Lectionary passages for each Sunday and joining with thousands of other churches across the world who are using the same parts of scripture for their teaching. It is good to remember that our little church is part of something much, much bigger across our planet. We may use just part or all of these passages but they are our starting point as we approach the teaching for any given Sunday.

If you want to do a daily reading to go along with these Sunday passages you can find them here: daily readings
