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 church has an NHS Track and Trace QR code; if you do not want or cannot use this, you can leave contact details with one of the people on duty during services but we do not require people to do so

  • the use of face covering is now again compulsory unless exempt

  • we continue to block off some pews to allow for physical distancing – you are welcome to sit close together in the open pews but please be considerate of those who may be anxious about close proximity

  • we recommend that the more cautious sit in the southern aisles (to the right as you enter the building)

  • we will continue to make hand sanitising facilities and face masks available; we have also lateral flow test kits in church and ask that you take a test at home or immediately before joining us for one of the larger gatherings

Worshippers who want to partake of Holy Communion in both kinds are invited to bring their own cup or glass. 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.
