Coronavirus Update

With the gradual decreasing number of Covid cases, when attending church services we ask you to:

  • Continue to use the hand cleanser at the door.
  • Respect other people’s personal space.
  • Whist mask wearing is not obligatory, if you feel comfortable wearing one, please continue to do so. (We have a good supply of disposable masks should you forget to bring yours.)
  • Continue to sing.
  • Continue to receive Holy Communion in both kinds under Covid safe procedure.

Refreshments after church on Sunday mornings will be served. 

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