For those coming to worship in the church buildings, you will see that the tapes and barriers have now been removed and the kneelers and pew cushions are back in place.  Face coverings, social distancing and hand sanitising are now matters for your own personal discretion; however if anyone in church is wearing a face covering, please respect that, and do not sit or stand within two metres of them unless they invite you to do so.  Where possible, depending on the availability of organists, hymns will be sung.

Holy Communion will remain in one kind for the time being.  Please act with Christian care towards the whole worshipping community, and remember that we all have very different feelings at this time.


All our previous recorded and live-streamed services are still available on Nicola Lenthall’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRoQ3YB9ywTtcFdtEt0vmgQ . The orders of service and hymns were sent out at the time.


Please see our basic Safeguarding policy.
