Recovery after  lockdown:
Our church
building is now open for general visiting and individual private prayer daily between 9am and 4.30pm. Our worship together on Sundays is now back to a full program, please see the schedule at the bottom of this page. As a sign of our responsibility to one another we still practice social distancing between pews, and the wearing of face-coverings is mandatory in places of worship at this time. We continue to provide hand-sanitiser. We will keep our QR-code for use with NHS App’. We have resumed gentle congregation singing. The clinically vulnerable may wish to come into church during the week on their own, or to our smaller, quieter ‘said’ services at 8am.
