Sunday Worship from one of our three churches will be available to watch on our Benefice Facebook page every week.

Non eucharistic worship maybe indoors or outdoors, according to weather and local preference. Holy Communion services will be inside.

Keeping everybody safe when attending gathered worship -

Although the legal restrictions have lifted, we still want everyone to feel safe when attending services. As you arrive, stewards may direct you to your seats, and please use any one way systems that may be in place. Please wear face coverings if you are able to.

All our churches have joined the eco-church scheme to protect the environment so please:

Help reduce the amount of paper we use by bringing your own bibles or downloading a copy of the weekly sheet (available in the News and Notices tag) if you would like to follow the readings.

Share transport to services where possible.
