Key news items are also shared on our website here.

 


Worship Update
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.

Church Gardens
We are planning working parties to get the garden areas cleared of weeds. Gardening skills are not required as some parts just need tidying. If you can spare even an hour, we could make the gardens, car park and War Memorial looking as they should – well cared-for. Saturdays 31 July and 14 August are the dates (with more to follow if necessary) starting at 9.00am until 12 noon. Refreshments will be provided.
