Church News

We are delighted that we are now able to hold services in church again, (although we continue to follow the Church of England guidelines for worship and general safety- hands-face-space etc). Please see the “Services and events” section on the website for details of all our services- you will be very welcome to join us! 

The church continues to be open every day, 10am to 4pm, for individual private prayer. We pray you will find peace and God’s love there when you visit.

Please contact Revd Anthony Dickson directly for details about Funerals and Weddings

Church at Home

In order to continue to worship together and feel connected with others during this time you can live-stream services from other churches. You can find details of live-streams on the "Live Streamed Services " section of this website, or the website above gives addresses for you to link into.

You may also wish to hold your own “mini-service” at home, and there is liturgy on the website for this purpose, along with prayers for you to say about the effects of the virus; and you can upload The Church of England Daily Prayer App from your app store

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has launched a free national phoneline as a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people’s homes while church buildings are closed because of the Coronavirus. Daily Hope, which is available now, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.

The line – which is available 24 hours a day- tel- 0800 804 8044.
