During this Covid-19 pandemic we have developed new ways to worship 'together', and over the summer we have also started to return to worship in our building, in a slow and careful way. Here are our current arrangements.

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">We celebrate Sunday worship each week with a pre-recorded service shared on our YouTube channel </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_10sXmB7N5CKsD60_eRXjg. Many people choose to watch and participate at 10.30am, but you can access this any time (and multiple times!) from when it's posted, which is usually on the Saturday evening. </span>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">We have a live gathering for Compline (night prayer) on Wednesday evenings via Zoom. This is usually led by Revd Nick Bird, or our new curate Mark Poole. Nick sends out the order of service in advance, so you can follow along and join in with the responses. If you like, hang around for a bit afterwards to catch up with others attending. The link is </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86707839332. You can download the Zoom app, or just open the link in your browser. </span>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">We have recently begun celebrating a short service of Morning Prayer in our building at 9.00am every Wednesday. All are welcome, but please wear a face mask and observe social distancing and good hygiene precautions. </span>

The church building is also open twice a week for private prayer, on Wednesday 1pm - 4pm and Sundays 1pm - 4pm. Again, please please wear a face mask and observe social distancing and good hygiene precautions.
