Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and weekly intimations page. Sunday worship is now available online and in print. If you are housebound and would like the printed service, or a CD recording of the service then please contact the office.
Restrictions update : There is no longer a requirement to wear masks in a church service. (nb. Masks must be worn when moving to the halls for Tea/Coffee). We have set aside the church west aisle seating as 1 metre distanced seating and would request that masks continue to be worn in this area. There is no longer any requirement to phone in advance to add your name to a Track and Trace register. We continue to encourage the use of Flow Tests and ask everyone to sanitise their hands before entering the building.
Live streaming : The Sunday services are live streamed. This means that some areas of the church will be in the view of the camera, these areas include the chancel area and the front couple of rows of pews. The live-stream can be accessed by clicking on the link on the front page of the church website. Shortly after the service has concluded the service will be available to watch as a recording on the church YouTube channel.
