Recovery after  lockdown: Our church building remains open for 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. Following the general deregulation of 19th July, we shall keep many of our safety measures in place, to give those attending worship confidence. Social distancing and the wearing of face-coverings will no longer by mandatory, but we will encourage those attending to considering retaining masks and spacing for the wellbeing of others.  We will continue to provide hand-sanitiser, both as you enter and as you leave. We will maintain our daily and weekly cleaning regime for the time being. We will continue to record names and contact details  with explicit consent on Sundays and retain the QR-code for use with NHS App’. We will be resuming gentle congregation singing from 25th July. We have carried out all necessary checks to try to ensure everyone’s safety, but the clinically vulnerable may wish to come into church during the week when they can be safe on their own, or to our smaller, quieter ‘said’ services at 8am.
