Important - if you are attending Services held in church
Please note that the requirements of social distancing mean that the number who can attend church services in person at this time is restricted. You must let the Churchwarden of the church you plan to attend know in advance so that there will be space for you and your family. Telephone numbers can be found above.
Face coverings should be worn by all those attending inside a place of worship.
In-church services can of course only take place in accordance with the Government COVID regulations prevailing on the day. Changes at short notice will be notified via email, social media and posters.

Streamed Worship Notes
Log on for Sunday morning online streamed worship from 10:30am, please email email@example.com for the link (as above).
You are most welcome to join in and if you would like to have more details please email the Church Office.
The link is emailed in advance and you would need to give your contact details including an email address and phone number. We can't publish the links here for security reasons, but you are still very welcome.*
It is highly recommended not to 'arrive' at the very last minute as most people enjoy it more by taking a little while to get a good connection sorted out and iron out any queries. Also arriving in good time prevents you being excluded inadvertently by the security lock (see next paragraph).
* The service is locked for admission soon after the start time to prevent abusive internet behaviour which sadly has happened occasionally to other churches using online worship.
