The Church continues to be alive and active.
The UK is still seeing a number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
From Saturday July 4, places of worship will be able to re-open for public worship – subject to social distancing rules. The Diocese Coronavirus Task Group are waiting for the latest guidance from the government and the Church of England on how this can be achieved in as safe a manner as possible and further advice will be issued once this guidance is available.
Private Prayer Open Day – Each Sunday our Churchwardens are opening the church from 8.00am to 2.00pm commencing with led Morning Prayer at 8.00am and then for the remaining time for individual private prayer. Members of the Parochial Church Council will be in attendance throughout to welcome you.
On-line Zoom services continue to be at 10.00am on Sundays, at 8.00pm on Wednesdays and on other occasions. Joining details from the Churchwardens.
The Churchwardens are also allowing limited opening of St Peter & St Paul for individual entry and private prayer as follows:-
