As social distancing is no longer mandatory you will not be required to book a seat and will be free to sit where you wish to. However, you may still be asked to sign in, use sanitiser provided and to respect the space of other worshippers, if that is their wish. You may still be expected to wear face coverings, but during the service you may sing hymns, (if this has been authorised by the local Risk Assessment) and speak responses as normal, although books may not be provided. The retiring collection will remain, hand shaking, and hugging are still discouraged to minimise contact. This cautious approach is in line with advice from the Connexion.
#New Sunday afternoon service
We are now offering a short service at 3.00 pm each Sunday in the church building. We have put the necessary measures in place to ensure a Covid Secure setting. Please note that face-coverings must be worn at all times inside the church. At present, we are unable to include singing, communion, or after-service fellowship. The 10.30am streamed service will continue as usual.
We are only able to accommodate 24 people on a Sunday afternoon. It will help if you can let us know if you plan to attend by booking a seat using this, go to the church website for link.
There is a family service/all age worship on the first Sunday of every month.
On the third Sunday of the month there is a service of Holy Communion at 9.15am.
This service will provide opportunity for quiet prayer and reflection, lasting for about 30 minutes.
When there are 5 Sundays in a month we will use the extra week to sample different forms of worship.
A mid-week service with Holy Communion is held on Wednesdays at 9.30am followed by coffee.
