We are continuing to run our services unchanged . Please wear a face covering and sit in the seats indicated, maintaining social distancing whilst inside the building. Thank you everyone for your co-operation and patience through all this.


It is the law for members of the congregation to wear masks in church. Congregational singing in this parish will not re-start until that restriction has been removed - and we will be delighted to vigorously publicise the lifting of the restriction when that time comes. So I want to thank you, in advance, for being considerate, and not repeatedly questioning the clergy and organists about when things might change. This situation is for your safety, and for the many vulnerable people around you.
