BRING AND BUY SALE   

Our first post-Covid event raised over £1000 towards our roof repairs.  It was a really enjoyable day and lovely to see friends and neighbours joining us and supporting our appeal.  Click here to see photos of the event.  

 

Sunday Services in Church

 

Our regular Sunday morning Eucharist service is at 9 am.  You no longer need to reserve a place.  In church, we are seating two people per pew, in alternate pews).  You may choose any seat that is marked with a green card.  If you prefer to sit on your own, simply turn the green card over to red to indicate that the seat next to you is not available.  Please continue to wear a face covering and use the hand sanitiser as you enter church.  At the end of the service there will be a hymn.  Face masks must be worn during the singing.  If you do not feel comfortable singing indoors, please feel free to leave church before the hymn begins. 

On-line Services

We have live-stream and video services for you to watch and worship at home.

A prayer for these difficult times

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.

In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
