Reflections through Lockdown

  Over the past year Angela had writen down some thoughts and reflections, maybe even "ramblings".
She hopes you can find the time to relax and read them.

  Please follow this link to find the list of reflections.


 Angela has prepared a Morning Prayer service for us to read at home.
