Although all legal restrictions from the Government have been removed, we have decided to keep the current restrictions in place for the time being. This is to provide a safe space for all, especially in light of the rising numbers of COVID-19 locally. These restrictions include social distancing, the wearing of face coverings, and continuing with recorded music with no congregational singing. We will keep this under review and make appropriate adjustments when safe to do so in the future. Read More
