Worship Activities  for Sunday, 5 September 2021 - Pitt St Virtual Church

We've done things differently this week, a worship resource was distributed via email and then we met over our virtual cuppa.  The activities are listed below - you are invited to follow this "service" in your own time. You may wish to experience everything in the order it is presented, or take parts of it as suits you.
