Happy New Year to everyone - and may it be a better one than 2020!

Covid Changes As we are now in Tier 4, what we do at church is changing for the wellbeing of those who are vulnerable. Public worship is still allowed. However, the church will only be open 10-12 each day, and the choir will no longer sing on Sundays. Wednesday’s evening Epiphany mass will be streamed only, but there will be one at 10.00am. There will be no 8am on Sundays, and the Saturday 6pm will continue at present.

Fr Julian and Jane are so very grateful for the many cards, gifts and other expressions of goodwill this Christmas. They are most appreciative and thank you all.

It has been hung in the Lady Chapel behind the altar, and will be dedicated in due course.
