Covid-19 (Corona Virus)

We would like to inform you that our church is now closed for public worship until 2nd December 2020.  However, we have not shut up shop and our church will be open for short periods of private individual prayer on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 10.00 to 11.00am.  Please wear your mask, unless exempt. Hand sanitizer is available for your hands and we ask that you please follow any instructions given.  At busy times you may unfortunately have to queue outside.

Our church continues to be open for funerals (with restricted numbers), but not for Christenings or Weddings.  Please continue to check this website and our Facebook page for updates 

Please do continue to join us in prayer in your own homes at these difficult times .  Please also continue with us as we pray together as the whole family of God for all those affected in whatever way by this pandemic.
