1st Sunday in Lent

All church services are cancelled until further notice

It is with a heavy heart that (in consultation with the PCCs) we have made the decision to suspend all in person services until further notice. The decision is not an easy one to make but to protect us all in light of the new coronavirus strain, which is spreading rapidly, I think it is the right decision to make. This week you can join us for the following services:

Zoom Church at 10am on Sunday 21st February.
Meeting ID: 881 2828 2061, Passcode: 982280
