 Corona Virus News


Important Up Date.

 In view of the National Lockdown and rising infection rates locally as well as nationally, reluctantly we have decided to suspend in person worship on Sundays.  We shall also remain closed for individual private prayer. 

As you will appreciate this was a difficult decision, as we say, reluctantly taken.  We are convinced, however, that at this time of national emergency, it is the right decision for us to gather online to worship.  We will continually monitor the situation and review this decision.

Needing assistance at this difficult time ?

It can be a difficult time for some people during this period of national lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Church of England 24-hour telephone line, Daily Hope offering music, prayers and reflections on 0800 804 8044 may help .

Please also make a note of the Samaritans helpline 116 123.
