Book to attend!

We're delighted to now be able to meet together on Sundays from Sunday 12th July 2020! 

Book now

Sundays at 10.30am, with the Lord's Supper

For now, to manage our building capacity with social distancing, we're asking you to book to attend a Sunday morning service:

Book to attend

  • Please book to attend only once per calendar month for now.
  • Please note that the 1st Sunday of the month is adults-only.  This is in order to reassure the most vulnerable that they can attend a service where social distancing is perfectly observed.

Other services

On weeks when you can't attend, the live-stream is available every Sunday as normal.

In addition, we are trialling a short 4pm service of the Lord's Supper every Sunday at 4pm for those not attending in the morning.  There is no need to book for this.

Health precautions

We are following Church of England guidelines in order to ensure the safety of our congregation.  These include:

  • Currently there will be no children's groups.
  • A creche room will be available for parents to use as they wish but no shared toys will be available.
  • Currently the congregation will be asked not to sing.
  • All seats will be 2 metres apart (except those attending from the same household).
  • Hand sanitiser must be used on entry and exit to the church building.
  • No refreshments or food will be served.
  • The Lord's Supper will be available in one kind only - only the bread will be distributed and this will only be handled by the minister with sanitised hands.
  • The congregation will be asked to leave prompty at the end of the service.
  • Wearing of face-coverings is voluntary.
  • While those at extra risk and the ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ should be advised of the risks of attending, the decision is theirs alone.
  • Government guidance includes a request for names of attendees to be recorded and kept for 21 days to assist ‘track and trace’ if required.
  • Toilets will be open as normal.
