A MESSAGE FROM THE RECTOR (updated 10 December 2021)

People wearing masks

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

MASKS ARE REQUIRED IN PLACES OF WORSHIP by updated government covid regulations dated 9 December. We would respectfully ask everyone to comply with these. Convictions for non-compliance carry heavy financial penalties which double with each repeat offence.

As the current Church of England covid guidance points out “Because face coverings are mainly intended to protect others, not the wearer, from coronavirus they are not a replacement for physical distancing … ”. Please also continue to practice social distancing when in church too.

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
