Since initial publication, our Coronavirus pages have been updated many times.  The latest version of this page may be viewed here.


In light of the latest guidance from the government and the Church of England, our usual pattern of Sunday services and other midweek gatherings must be put on hold with immediate effect.  This affects all areas of our church life.

Instead we are exploring how to be a different kind of church, and how to both keep in contact and provide practical help.

Accordingly we encourage you to :-

  • Join our live-streamed video services via our Facebook page .  We have a live-streamed Sunday morning service as well as a weekday ‘At Home’ Morning Prayer  service.  All start at 10am.  Please download a Morning Prayer service booklet from here.
  • Watch our other daily videos on our Facebook page or on our website here.
  • Keep in contact via email, social media or telephone with each other.  If you are not already in one of our ‘Virtual Groups’ and wish to be included, please email us.

Please refer to this page for Practical Help if you are ill or isolated.

Please refer to this page for Spiritual Help during this time.
