Services

Under current Government guidance, masks must be worn in church (unless you are exempt). 

For the time being Communion will be in one kind, and we will not pass a collection during services.

We hope to Zoom the 10am services, using the same link used during lockdown, so people can still connect from home. We have installed equipment to make it easier to stream services and to allow people at home to take part in our services, eg by reading a lesson. 

Please check the website, Facebook/Twitter and Patrick’s emails for updates on our services – they may need to be changed at short notice. If a service is cancelled and you know someone who is not on the internet, please let them know. Thank you.

Below is our current pattern of services. We also hope to have special services e.g. at Christmas and Easter Time. For full details and other events please see the latest Notice sheet

Please be aware that recordings of Zoom services may be put on our Facebook page so that people may watch at a later date.
