A Eucharistic service, using Common Worship (modern language) is posted every week on our main website which can be accessed by a link - the for at varies according to the Covid Rules in operation at the time - at present we can hold services in church and upload a video later in the day. During full Lockdown this opens a text-based page with links to music and videos, usually including a reading for the day, Gospel, Sermon, and prayers. We encourage everyone if possible to join in at 9:30 on Sunday morning but the link is always live. On Sundays when we have traditionally run an 'informal' service as well, these are now also posted for that week, in a similar format including usually activities for kids and/or learners.
At 11:00 we usually open an online 'Zoom' chatroom to resemble our 'Coffee for All' time after services! Find the link on our website at the end of the services!

The service begins at 9.30 and the refurbished church building allows us flexibility in worship ... A sung Eucharist open to all is held most Sundays - unless we are having a Family Eucharist - which is even more open but may be less traditional! All our main services (not, unfortunately, during the Covid period) are followed by 'refreshments' in the Hall, where Fairtrade goods are also on sale.
