Resumption of public worship in our church buildings

29 Mar 2021, midnight

It is good that we can now be back in our churches for public worship. There is something particularly poignant about returning at Easter, with its message of hope. 

However, for the present we still have to abide by the same regulations as before Christmas i.e. social distancing will be in place, booking will be necessary, masks will need to be worn and we are not allowed to sing. We look forward to the summer when hopefully these restrictions will begin to be lifted. 

 Interim Service Pattern 

From April to June we have put in place an interim pattern of services as follows:

 9.30 am Upper Church 

10.00 am Zoom 

11.30 am Old Church 

The services at the Upper Church will be Holy Communion (Common Worship) on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 5th Sundays of the month, with All Together Worship on the 4th Sunday. 

The services at the Old Church will be Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer) on the 1st Sunday, Matins on the 2nd Sunday of the month, and Holy Communion (Common Worship) on the 3rd and 4th Sundays, and Morning Worship on the 5th Sunday of the month.
