Here for you during the Coronavirus outbreak
On 7th June 2020 the Government announced that churches are permitted to open for individual private prayer and for funeral services, provided they follow social distancing guidelines. Following a careful risk assessment we have decided to open for private prayer.
We will be open on Tuesday 7th July from 9:30am - 10:30am
Saturday 11th July from 1:30pm - 2:30pm
This will be reviewed and the dates and times for the following week will be posted here.
A further Government announcement on 23rd June allows for churches to resume services, including weddings and funerals from 4th July. However social distancing rules remain in place and so the numbers allowed for these will be very limited. The PCC will plan for resuming services and we will update you with details of when this will happen as soon as possible.

On Bank Holiday Monday we put 200 hearts on the tree and railings at church, each with a message that read, ' This heart is filled with God's love for you.' 24 hours later every single heart was gone! 200 hearts = 200 people - God bless every one of them.
Services at our Church were suspended on 18th March 2020. This was a national decision to try to keep people as safe as possible during the Coronavirus outbreak. Now that lockdown is easing it is possible again to have small funerals and weddings at the church. We have no decision yet on Christenings but you can book these in advance by contacting Gill White in the Church Office.
We are looking at ways of keeping everyone in touch and making sure that we are still here for everyone in the parish, whenever they need help, support and care. Each day, during the outbreak, Rev'd Jane will say prayers on behalf of the Parish and will be regularly posting on Youtube, linked to this website, Facebook and Twitter. Please watch this site for regular updates.
