LOCKDOWN JANUARY 2021
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to close our church building, suspending our communal worship and individual private prayer. Our worship will still be livestreamed, recorded and available here (see link below) and through our Facebook Page.
It is our church building that is closed not its people! If you, or anyone you know, are isolated, lonely or in need of any support please contact the church office on 01925 269861. We are still here to help YOU!
LIVESTREAMED SERVICES, PRAYERS AND REFLECTIONS
We will livestream every Sunday at 10am and occasionally during the week. To watch previous livestreamed services, prayers and reflections or to join a service as it happens, click here.

WORK ON THE NEW ANNEXE IS PROGRESSING
Work on the new annexe began on Monday 24th August. Our contractors are Grosvenor Construction Ltd. who are doing an excellent job and can continue to work during lockdown. A pathway through the churchyard has been fenced off to allow for the heavy machinery to access the site. The work will mean that for a time sections of the car park will be out of bounds and that the churchyard can only be accessed via the church track (down the side of the Parr Arms). The inconvenience will be worth it though and, as we see our beautiful new building emerge, we can give thanks to God for a new phase in our church's life. A huge thank you to all the organisations and individuals who have generously donated to this scheme.
Funds are still needed to complete the project. We need to push on to raise the money for Phase 2 which will see the resurfacing of the track, a new car park at the bottom of the track and a new pathway up through the churchyard leading to the annexe. Click HERE to find out more about how YOU can help.
Since 23rd March our income has been severely affected by the lockdown. There are still bills to pay and expenses connected to our ministry and mission. Please help by texting WILFS to 70085 to donate £5. THANK YOU
Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about out work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £5 but do

CHURCH AND FACE COVERINGS
Face coverings must be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus (COVID-19) and that they are not a replacement for social distancing and regular hand washing
