Welcome back to Genesis after the summer break. We hope you were able to enjoy days out or mini staycations during the school holidays. It seemed that quite a few of us managed a few days on Anglesey and North Wales.

Having explored the Church of England advice, we are likely to keep Genesis on Zoom up to and including Christmas. We will return to weekly sessions from September and these will start at the slightly earlier time of 9.45am- 10.15. This will allow us to then join the first part of the church service which starts at 10.30am so we can share our learning with the congregation (in a similar way to how we did when we went across to Church). There is no expectation that Genesis will stay for the whole service, perhaps just 15 minutes of it, but of course you are welcome to do so.

Please contact one of the Genesis Team for the Zoom ID numbers and passcodes for Genesis and the St Luke’s service.

As usual the Autumn term for us at Genesis is one of our busiest and this year will be no exception as we plan to do all our activities virtually over zoom. This will include harvest, Operation Christmas Child and Mary’s meals, Remembrance, Christingle and our nativity! As usual the third Sunday in the month will be an All Age worship on Zoom at 10.30-11.10am, so there will be no Genesis
