Reopening our church buildings for public worship
Please read the 10 July Update from Alan for full details.
From Sunday 19 July, the new pattern of services through July and August will be as follows:
8.00am Communion Service at St Andrew’s using a traditional liturgy and perhaps with some musical accompaniment.
9.15am Communion Service at St Mary’s with the shortened liturgy we currently use on Zoom, with musical accompaniment.
10.30am Zoom Service
7.00pm Zoom Compline
10.30am Zoom Service
We are hoping that the 10.30am service at St Andrew’s will reconvene some time in September. At that time, the 8.00am will revert to being a BCP service.
The church is open for private prayer during these times:
Tuesdays 10.00am - 12noon
Fridays 2.00pm - 4.00pm
We welcome you to spend some time in prayer and contemplation. Stewards will be present to offer guidance during your visit. (Please do not come to the church if you are in a high-risk group (clinically extremely vulnerable) or you are feeling unwell or you are self-isolating due to symptoms in your household.)
