Welcoming you back to Church

We are closely following Church of England guidance to allow gathered worship in our churches. If you suspect you may have Covid-19 please stay at home. If you develop symptoms within 14 days of attending a service, please firstly call NHS 111 and secondly let the Rector know by email to [email protected] or calling 01707 875940

Please see the calendar for detailed service information and check our website for any changes. Do please join us if you are able and if not, our Zoom services are to continue. There is also a telephone service every Wednesday at 10am. Joining instructions for both the telephone and zoom services can be obtained from [email protected]

Do, please diligently follow the social distancing rules at all times whilst in our church buildings and it is mandatory to wear a face covering unless you are exempt. You can find out about exemptions both on the Church of England website and on the Gov.UK website. These measures are to keep both you and others as safe as possible. It is important also to use the hand sanitiser which is provided.

Sadly, no refreshments are available after the service or at any other times.
