Church opens for public worship
We are delighted that we can remain open for public worship during the new lockdownand look forward to praying with you. However, some may feel that it is currently better not to attend in person. Believers who have concerns, and others who are shielding, should take particular care and stay at home. Fr David can be contacted by phone or email with your prayer requests or just for a friendly chat.

The same protocols about masks, hand sanitisation, social distancing and recording temperature and attendance will apply. Our capacity is approximately 30 persons depending on whether you attend as a family or an individual. Once we have reached capacity, you will be asked to wait in your cars.
Please follow the instructions of the church committee members. We reserve the right to ask you to leave if you refuse to wear a face mask unless you have proof of exemption or do not comply with any reasonable request we will make so as to keep you and everyone else safe. The church is indeed the House of God but it is not protected by Him in a magic way.
There should be NO mixing of households and we ask you to depart promptly after the Liturgy has finished. Let's all be careful as the government guidelines mention fines that may be imposed on those who don't comply with the rules and other sanctions (e.g. closing the church).
Verbal or physical abuse of Clergy, volunteers and staff will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to call the police and to refuse entry to anyone who behaves in an aggressive manner either inside or outside the church.
Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and cooperation in these most challenging times. God is wonderful in His Saints, let us continue to pray. We urge everyone to pray for those on the front line in our public services - the NHS and those working in social care, for schools and many others on whom we depend and for parents and carers of children at this anxious and stressful time.
There is hope. The vaccination programme is underway and, as Christians, we have a deeper hope in God that comforts us beyond fear itself.
Finally, let us repent, turn to God, and do works befitting repentance.
May God bless and keep you all!
