Coronavirus Update

With the ever increasing number of cases of Covid here are some slight revisions to our advice when attending church services:

  • Whist mask wearing is not obligatory, you are encouraged to wear your mask (we have a good supply of disposable masks should you forget to bring yours).
  • Continue to use the hand cleanser at the door.
  • Continue to sing.
  • Receive Holy Communion as current practice.

Refreshments after church will continue to be offered.

Please keep an eye on our website for the most up to date information.
