  • Update concerning COVID-19

    In line with Government guidance, our church buildings remain open for private prayer during the day. If you would like to visit one of the churches at a time when it is not open, please contact a churchwarden.

    Due to the sharp rise in cases of coronavirus in our area, it has been decided that the safest option is to stop meeting together for worship in church for the time being. This will be reviewed at the end of January.

    A service will continue to be live streamed each week (see main part of homepage for details).

    We are continuing to support those who are still wary of going out. Please follow this link for more information, along with the latest guidance on weddings and funerals.

    If you need to talk, please don't hesitate to ring one of the numbers on our contact page.

    Every Blessing, Simon
