We welcome you for a specially designed Service of Parish Eucharist, having worked hard to make the occasion as safe as we can for those wish to join us. 

In accordance with Government and Church of England guidance on public worship we ask that everyone wears a mask when they come. There will be clear instructions about hand sanitising and social distancing on arrival so please pay attention when you enter the building. As you may have seen elsewhere we are not permitted to sing together but there will music to listen to, prayers, readings and a sermon in this service of approximately 40 minutes. 

There is very thorough guidance from the Government and the Church of England about how to do this safely but we would still appreciate your feedback. You can do that by emailing Parish Office

The Online Services will continue to be uploaded and remain our primary act of worship.

17:00Advent Service (Premiere) - Maranatha

Our pre-recorded Advent service premiere (but also available for viewing at any later point).

"Maranatha - Come Lord Jesus" - As we enter the season of Advent, Emma reflects on the meaning of Maranatha interspersed with some seasonal readings, the opportunity to sing some much loved Advent hymns and pray for Christ to enter our hearts at this very special time of year. If possible, find a quiet half hour and perhaps light a candle to focus on the light of the world that came at Christmas, that will come again at the end of time and that is present in our hearts now
