Welcome to our Parish Website!

IMPORTANT COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENTS
Following recent guidance from the Government and central Church authorities, the PCC has taken the decision that it is safe to reopen our building from 10:00am each Sunday morning for a weekly Service of Reflection or Holy Communion.  This is subject to the prevailing condition of everyone present wearing a suitable face covering (unless medically exempt) and maintaining safe social distancing at all times.  The church will also be open for private prayer each weekday morning between 10:00am and 12noon.

Regrettably, owing to the restrictions placed upon social contact, only very limited essential practical support will be available until further notice. Access to our daily Bible reflections and on-line Sunday services will continue to be available for the foreseeable future.  Please uphold those suffering from the coronavirus virus, together with ther family and friends, in prayer, and do be sure to bookmark this page and come back regularly!
