Sunday Service 9th May:

Kids' Sunday Club for children aged 4-11 years old online. Children receive a materials box every 4-6 weeks with craft activities, colouring sheets and bible verses to do at home.

They meet every Sunday at 10am online for friendship, fun, prayer, worship, bible stories and activities.

Contact Sue for more information on how to join: kidsteam@fcchurch.co.uk

Sunday service will be streamed LIVE from FCC Church building (with NO congregation) and can be watched on the church YouTube page at 10.30am.

Stephen McQuoid will bring the message to conclude our FUN weekend activities.

After the service there will be a virtual coffee and chat at 11.45am. Sorry, you will have to supply your own coffee!

There will also be a separate Bridge Youth Group Zoom meeting at 11.45am.

It is hoped that church in-person can first happen on Sunday 27th June 2021 - but this will obviously depend on events up to then.
