Our Church building will remain open for services on Sunday Morning only until the end of July. From August onwards we hope to revert to our normal Service pattern of Sunday morning and evening. The midweek Thursday service will recommence on 10th July.

Our regular Baby and Toddler Song activity and Messy Church events remain suspended until further notice.

The Government removed most restrictions on 19th July as it moved to level 4 of the roadmap to recovery. Our church chooses to be cautious and Rev Val wrote "I plan to continue with Communion as in the past few months, I.E. no common cup and wearing gloves and a visor.

<div> It seems that we can sing either with or without a mask. which will be fabulous. </div> <div> I am also happy that you may choose to wear a mask and maintain social distancing but I believe chairs can go back to normal in our churches. </div> <div> After the end of this month, I will be suspending the on line services for the month of August and plan to reintorduce them possibly in September</div>

Please be aware you can still, if you wish

- Sanitise your hands on arrival

- Wear a face covering at all times

- Observe social distancing

- Avoid physical contact with other people during the service.

We will update our website with news of further developments as they become known.

Any questions or queries should be asked of Rev Val Keating Tel 01484 606126 or [email protected]

Keep us, good Lord,

Under the shadow of your mercy

In this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

And lift up all who are brought low;

That we may rejoice in your comfort,

Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

In Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
