Online Church Services, Prayers & Worship
This Sunday we will be joining Brixham Mission Community for their online service. John Gay will be preaching on Colossians 3:16: ‘Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching… wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.’
