Covid 19 Notice


Sadly we have had to take the decision to suspend Communal Worship at this time whilst we are in Tier 4 and the Bishop has agreed this. We made the decision based on the new variant of the virus which is far more transmissible and the fact that a number of our congregation are clinically vulnerable and others who are working as key workers fear spreading.  We shall of course keep this very much under review and inform you as soon as possible of any changes.
