Update: 07 January 2021
After a staff review, we have decided to suspend gathered services during the current lockdown until further notice. You can view a statement here.
Online services, prayer meetings and social gatherings will continue.
Update: 04 January 2021
The Government have announced a National Lockdown with immediate effect. However, gathered church services are allowed provided Covid secure measures are in place. Our Tuesday morning service on 5th January will take place. If you wish to attend, please register your intent to come in person through the church office and bring a face covering to wear. The staff team will continually review the position regarding the operation of gathered services, but online services will remain to enabe communal worship.
Update: 29 November 2020
Government restriction changes mean that from 02 December 2020 we are now able to hold communal church services again. All Coronavirus safe practices will, of course, remain in place, so please register your intent to come in person through the church office (by 11am Friday 4th December) and bring a face covering to wear.
Update: 03rd November 2020
Unfortunately, following government action to reduce coronavirus infections, we've had to suspend the church services we had begun to hold. Our online services will remain so we can stay in touch with as many people as we can to share the Love of God
Update: 10th October 2020
We've been meeting at gathered Sunday services since 4th October 2020 and these meetings will continue while goverment restrictions allow it. If you wish to attend, please book your place ahead of time, by calling the office or booking a place online using the tickets option, so we are able to accomodate you and comply with Track and Trace procedures. Please also bring and wear face coverings.
The following video shows the set up within the Church building whilst we meet in this way...
Going forward, our meetings in Church will be
- Each Tuesday 11:00 am Morning service in Church
- 3rd Friday of month 7:30 pm Parish prayer - "Soaking" (please note new frequency)
- Each Sunday 10:30 am Gathered service - please book places
- Each Sunday 10:30 am Online Service
Update: 13th September 2020
It's our aim to restart Sunday gathered services starting from 4th October 2020. As part of this, the services will be a bit different to work within Government and National Church Guidelines. So whilst we will be able to meet, attendees will need to bring and wear face coverings, there will be no singing or communion elements and social distancing will need to be maintained. Contact details will also be recorded to ensure we are Track and Trace compatible.
