Welcome!

Bright Sparks (our baby and toddler group) update (19 October 2020)

Watch our online service any time after 8.00am each Sunday.

CHURCH OPEN for MORNING WORSHIP at 11.00am on Sunday 18th October 2020 for 30 minutes. Please join us if you are able.

Our ONLINE SERVICE will be available here on our website (see above), A Church Near You, and on Facebook from 8.00am each Sunday.

We will follow government and Church of England guidance to provide a safe environment in Church.

Social distancing will be in operation and hand sanitiser will be provided on arrival.

Face coverings are now mandatory.

We will play music, though will not be singing.

There will unfortunately be no refreshments after church. Toilets will NOT be available on this occasion.

In the unlikely event that there are too many people to ensure safe social distancing, we may, very reluctantly, have to ask people not to enter the church building on this occasion.

Please give a one-off gift to support our work today.
