Following guidance from government and the Church of England, there will be no church services until further notice in order to restrict the spread of the Covid-19 virus and all church buildings will remain closed.
An order of service is available for Sunday during these times and also for special Easter services and Holy Week reflections, please see the links on our Home page.
We look forward to resuming our usual services as shown below as soon as we can, meanwhile if you wish to talk to someone from the ministry team you can find details on our contacts page.
