Covid19 Update:

From this Sunday 13th March we ask that everyone still observes the one way system on entering the church sanctuary, however people will now be able to leave at the end of the service by whatever door is convenient.
Then, from next Sunday 20th March, we will remove the need for social distancing in the north aisle, but will retain it in the east and west aisles for those who would prefer a little more space around them.

Please note that the wearing of face coverings is still compulsory, although that is expected to change over the next few weeks. Likewise the requirement for people to take lateral flow tests beforehand and leave their contact details for Test and Protect. We will update our church website as the guidelines change over the next few weeks.
