Please Check for Updates!

As changes are sometimes made at short notice, please check on the News page whether the above information has been changed or superseded.



We have resumed congregational worship for our three parishes and will gradually introduce more services in each of the churches over the coming weeks as conditions allow.

Restrictions of which you will be familiar from before Christmas remain:

  1. Social distancing from those not in your household or care bubble, must be maintained.
  2. Face masks must be worn at all times in church.
  3. Please use the hand cleanser at the door.
  4. We will not be able to join in with the singing of the hymns.
  5. Holy Communion will be distributed in a safe manner in one kind only.
  6. After the service you must disperse and not stay in church to have a catch up.

Review of Electoral Roll

The Review of our Electoral Roll is now underway ready for completion at the end of March.  Please check the list in the church and make any amendments necessary.  If you would like to be added to the Roll, please complete the form and return to the Electoral Roll Officer – Terri Adams on pcc.secretary@littlegaddesdenchurch.org.uk


Our church APCM will now take place via Zoom and not in church.  The date has changed to Thursday 22nd April at 7.00pm. Invitations to the meeting will be sent out nearer the time.

Midweek Discussion Group on Zoom

The Midweek Discussion Group meeting via Zoom on Wednesday evenings are now under way.

The sessions start with a general welcome chat to hear how everyone is getting on, then some discussion often centred around a Bible passage, with a short time of prayer at the end.  Everyone will be considered to be fully present if they have signed in, but there is no need to say or share anything.  You can spend the whole time ‘mute’ if you wish!

There are the usual protocols about confidentiality, as anything shared must be respected as being confidential to the group. All are welcome, but if inviting others please contact Anthony first.

The next ‘meeting’ is:

  • 31 March            Holy Week (to be decided)

Sign-in is at 19.55 hrs and the sessions end at 9.30pm sharp.  The Zoom invitation is sent a few days beforehand, usually with some background material.

Please contact Anthony Archer on anthony.archer@bridgewaterassociates.co.uk or 07721 504125 with any questions
