From Sunday 20 September, service times will be as follows: 

 - Zest - 9.30am in Church 


 - Service of the Word (followed by optional Eucharist) - 11.00am in Church 
 (with overflow in the Parish Room) 

This marks the end of the 4pm Service of the Word. Please note, there will be no refreshments between services.

Please also be aware of the following guidance from the Church of England: 

We strongly advise that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshipers, 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 physical distancing and regular hand washing. 

We do however understand and respect that exceptions apply.

Please maintain physical distancing measures when in the church building. During the 11am service, any overflow will be directed to the parish room where the speaker system will be used to enable people there to take part.

Normal hygiene measures (sanitiser on entry and exit, etc.) will be in place, and a register will be kept of those who attend for the purposes of government contact tracing.

If you need any more information, please contact the vicar.

During this time we will produce an alternative, online version of the weekly Parish Notes.
