A MESSAGE FROM THE RECTOR (updated 24 September 2021)

Our church remains open for private prayer during the week and Sunday services have now resumed.

Those attending our churches are encouraged to take every care for the well-being of others, as well as of themselves. Although no longer mandatory, we encourage continued social distancing and wearing of face coverings in church, especially when moving about the building, and when singing.

There is also a provision for live-streamed services, on Sundays and on Wednesday evenings, for those who wish to come together 'virtually' online and by telephone. Please check the ‘services’ page of this website for more details.

Your Rector,
Robert Ward
