The church will be open for private prayer from 10.30 to 11.30 on Wednesdays.

 

There will be some changes to our service lay out as from the 7th March. We are putting in place a very careful return to church, with safety and distancing our priority.  Masks and hand gel will apply.  This is to help us move forwards but cautiously.

The new rota to accommodate these changes is as follows:

 

7th March -                8.45. Eucharist in Church

                                 10.00 - Zoom Morning Prayer;

 

14th March -             8.45 Eucharist in Church

Mothering Sunday    10.00 - Zoom Family Service 

 

Then for the next two weeks, and for after Easter onwards:

 

21st March  -            8.45 Zoom Morning Prayer   

                                 10.00 Eucharist in Church

 

28th Match -             8.45 Zoom Morning Prayer

Palm Sunday             10.00 Eucharist in Church   

 

Schedule for Holy Week and Easter will be on the new rota. 

 

If you would like a candle lit for anyone or anything, and do not want to come to the building, please contact

Revd. Ali Cooper and she will do it for you.

At this difficult time, please keep our Government and all Key Workers in your prayers.

 

A reminder to wear face coverings, 

and also that we are in Tier 4
