As a way of communicating the messages contained within the Sunday Epistle and Gospel readings, our Church has been creating explanatory documents with both the readings and their messages. These are printed and provided at the front candle desk for the Sunday congregation, or if you wish to read them beforehand, they can be accessed from this page. Links will be added on a weekly basis.
