Holy Week and Easter 2021

Easter is for everyone and all ages. This means in 2021 that we will be outdoors, indoors, and online.

Due to the current complexities, details of times are not all given below but will be made available through our regular email. This is because the email will give you access to the latest booking arrangements (for spatial distancing), Youtube links, Zoom codes, and – heaven forfend! – contingency plans.

All Age Communion – St Michael’s paddock [booking required*] The logistics required for an outdoor service means that, with regret, we are unable to offer an 8am service this day. Plan B: if the weather looks awful, we reserve the right to postpone this service until the Sunday after.


Regular Services (click here for details) continue around the week at both churches and online. In addition, St Michael’s and St Mary’s remain open daily 9am – 5pm.
