Covid-19 update (February 2021):

The Grapevine is now being printed again, after a period of being online-only. The church news pages are still being made available free of charge online, but a subscription is required to access the whole magazine. 

During the current lockdown period, the diary pages are not being compiled, but there is information about the events which are still happening in the news pages.
