This is the Fourth Sunday of the month and at this time of the month we hold our popular service for families. People of all ages are welcome, with a special part being played by the children of the St Paternus Sunday Group. It is friendly and informal and is led by one of the group of Family Service Leaders It is likely to be led by one or more of our Family Service team.

With all Covid-19 compulsory restrictions currently lifted, it has been cautiously decided that singing in church will once more be part of our services. However, with Covid-19 Delta Variant cases rising rapidly, we respectfully ask, for the safety of all, that facemasks are worn when practical for all of the time you are inside the building. Please read government advice on face coverings, set out below. Also please use hand cleansing sanitisers on both entry and exit. You will find a sanitizer in the church porch and also one inside the church building near the entrance.

In services of Holy Communion the sharing of the cup is to be delayed until it is considered safe to offer it once more at the Communion Rail.

If you have downloaded the NHS Contact Tracing app on to your smart phone, please scan the QR Code posted on the church door before you enter the building.

The government expects and recommends that members of the public continue to wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet.
This applies to our church since it is an enclosed space, it can be crowded and we can come into contact with people we don't normally meet.
