The church remains CLOSED for services and private prayer.   We will be streaming live services and uploading videos for you to watch and worship in your own homes.  For more information, please see our News page.

The churchyard is open for people to visit family graves.  Please maintain all social distancing and other precautions if you visit the churchyard.

How you can help:

  • Stay at home and only go out for essential activites, eg food shopping.

  • Please wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds or use the hand gel sanitizer.

  • Please keep a distance of at least 2 metres from other people.

  • Maintain good hygiene - if you cough or sneeze, use a tissue, dispose of the tissue in the bin and wash your hands.

  • Do not touch your face unless you have washed your hands. 

  • If you feel unwell, you should self-isolate for the recommended period (see links below) and seek medical help if necessary.

  • Please contact us if you know of anyone within the parish who is ill and/or self-isolating and has no support from family or friends.
