Covid-19: Church closure

27 Mar 2020, 9 p.m.

Sadly, following guidance from government and Public Health experts, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have directed that all church buildings are to remain closed until further notice.

This means, of course, that no services can be held in our church.

While this is very sad, the decision has been made for the protection and well-being of us all.

It does not mean however that there is no church - for we remain as the living church and we reach out to all in whatever way we can.

Please visit our Benefice website where you will find resources to help us to be together in prayer and worship on-line.

The website will also post any updates to the present directives:

Ours thoughts and prayers are, as always, with you.

Be safe, be kind, stay strong.
