Along with the rest of the country we are now in Tier 4 meaning that we should stay at home except for essential shopping, work, medical reasons, daily exercise locally and communal worship. The latter is only possible if we observe strict protocols. These include wearing a face mask unless you have a medical exemption, social distancing (2 metres), entrance via the main doors and exit via the side door and hand washing, hand sanitizer is available. Communal worship means just that and does not include private prayer. To comply with the latest government instructions (and the law) it has been reluctantly decided that our church will remain locked except for communal worship, Mass, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. This will assist our efforts to maintain a Covid safe environment for communal worship.

Living Lord Jesus calls his followers to seek first your Kingdom. Renew us as we make your love known. Release us to share freely together in mission and rejuvenate us to be fruitful in your service. Give us courage, wisdom and compassion, that strengthened with the grace of the Holy Spirit, we may as the Diocese of Sheffield, both flourish and grow through Christ our Lord. Amen.
As a parish we take seriously the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults. We have formally adopted the House of Bishops 'Promoting a Safer Church' policy statement and a copy is displayed in the church. The Church Council has a current Parish Safeguarding Policy relating to children and vulnerable adults. A current DBS is in place for the parish Safeguarding Representative and for those meeting the eligibility criteria.
The Parish Safeguarding Representative is Tony Lindley who along the with the Parish Priest are ultimately responsible for any matters of concern relating to children and vulnerable adults. Contact details are on display in the parish church.
