As we are in clergy vacancy, we have had to make changes to the services we can offer.
Please go to News and Notices for full details of our services this month.

As we are currently awaiting the appointment of a Vicar, we have had to make changes to the services offered on Sunday mornings - we cannot currently hold services every Sunday in every church.

Our Parish is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Co-ordinator (PSC). Our Diocese’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSC. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSC or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor - see the contact list below.
If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
