Public Worship during the Coronavirus Crisis

Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am and is usually a service of Holy Communion. A Sunday Club for younger children is offered during the Liturgy of the Word. The third Sunday of the month is usually a Service of the Word for which all ages stay together. The evening service at 6.30pm is usually Evensong according to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer but Sung Communion (BCP) on the third Sunday of the month.

  • the use of face covering is no longer compulsory but we request that during main services those seated in the southern aisles (to the right as you enter the building) continue to wear face masks and allow for physical distancing to allow for the inclusion of those who want or need to be more cautious;

  • we continue to make hand sanitising facilities and face masks available;

  • worshippers who want to partake of Holy Communion are invited to bring their own cup or glass although paper cups are also made available. Due to ongoing health and safety concerns, we do not at present drink from a common vessel. The presiding minister will therefore consecrate a flagon rather than a chalice.

During the week Morning Prayer is usually said at 8am (but not usually on Mondays) and Evening Prayer at 5.30pm. Both take place in St Catherine's chapel without distancing or face masks but those who want to keep greater distance are welcome to join in being seated in other parts of the building.
