Tom will lead the service based on these sayings:

“Generally speaking, a howling wilderness does not howl; it is the imagination of the traveller that does the howling” – Henry David Thoreau
 
Although some our worship leaders will be leading services on Zoom from home, there are 14 places available in the church for anyone who would like to come and watch/listen to the service there.
