Building for the Future
the work starts NOW!
We are making some improvements to the inside of our church building. While the work is in progress we are still worshiping and meeting. Sunday services continue to be held in the church. Weekday activities are continuing in other places because the church is closed apart from Sundays.
Our Stewardship campaign started on Sunday, 24th July. Please click the image for more information
Children's Ministry Summer dates
Worshipping in Church
Services are held in church every Sunday at 8.00am and 10.00am, and on the third Sunday of the month a 6.30pm service of Evensong is held in church .
Apart from Sundays the church is currently closed until the end of November while we make some improvements to the inside of the building. (Please see the Building for the Future note above.)
A service of Holy Communion is held in the Church Room every Thursday at 10.00am.
You are very welcome to join us for one of our church services and in order to keep everyone safe we are asking for the following Covid safeguards to be followed please:
We shall continue to provide an area for those who prefer an element of social distancing. This will be in the south aisle of the church. If sitting in this area, we ask that masks are worn.
We are no longer asking for masks to be worn in other areas of the church. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please do.
The choir will continue to lead from the side chapel. However, this is no longer due to Covid requirements but rather a preference for doing so.
We will continue to offer a wafer from the chancel step. In addition, we will be offering the chalice from Easter Sunday. This will be available from in front of the organ pipes although, of course, there is no compulsion to partake.
Those not sitting in the south aisle are asked to return to their seats via the north aisle.
We are not proposing any change to the exchange of the Peace in the near future i.e. it will remain non-contact.
When it comes to giving, we are not proposing the passing of bags for the collection. Collection plates and card readers will be provided at the beginning and end of the service. Standing Orders with gift aid are very much encouraged. And the plate will be brought up at the end of the Offertory Hymn to represent all the ways in which people give.
Taking a Lateral Flow Test remains good practice particularly when recently in contact with others who have tested positive.
Please see here for further information, including the Rector's weekly emails ( most recent 28 July )
