  •  The UK Blessing
      At this unique and challenging time in the United Kingdom over 65 churches and movements, representing hundreds of others, have come together online to sing a blessing over our land. Standing together as one, our desire is that this song will fill you with hope and encourage you.

       But the church is not simply singing a blessing, each day we're looking to                         practically be a blessing. Many of the churches included in this song have assisted with supplying over 400,000 meals to the most vulnerable and isolated in our nation since COVID-19 lockdown began. This alongside phone calls to the isolated,    pharmacy delivery drops and hot meals to the NHS frontline hospital staff.

      We hope that the Canalside Churches are a blessing to many too at this time. 

       Click on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUtll3mNj5U  to enjoy this song.

        Our buildings may be closed but the church is very much alive!
