We celebrate in a traditional way on most Sundays however on the 1st Sunday of the month there is no Holy Communion and there is a more informal service held in the Priestman Hall with more contemporary music (this is our Celebrate Service). We extend a warm welcome to all who wish to join us at all of our services. Please note: Gluten Free Communion Wafers are available so please ask when you arrive at church. Please note that due to coved-19 situation there will be no wine served at this time and social distancing will be in place.
