Weekly Parish communion service

With the lifting of coronavirus restrictions in England, we are asked to remain cautious as the virus is still present. As a Christian community, we think particularly of those who are anxious and vulnerable. So if you feel able to continue to wear a face covering in church, that would be appreciated. But you no longer have to do so until you come up for Holy Communion or a blessing. Hand sanitiser continues to be made available and at the present time, we will still not share the common cup. Please do not attend church if you are unwell, continue to be considerate of each other and give people space where possible. Thank you.

Occasionally services may be transferred to one of our other churches, particularly for church festivals. Please see our website for the latest information.

St Swithun's reopens for Sunday worship
