Easter services The bishop has indicated that he hopes churches will be able to hold services on Easter Day (April 4th) this year, depending on Government advice. We will plan for services as soon as we can, but this is not likely to be confirmed until the week before Easter (e two weeks after the schools reopen). Watch this space!
