Sunday November 28th 

10.30am CAFE CHURCH (led by Louise James) - A more informal service with refreshments during the service - ALL VERY WELCOME - but please read notice below (in this colour) 

Government regulations have been relaxed BUT, as a Church, we are very concerned about the high numbers of infections and of deaths.  In line with recommendations, we will continue to practice social distancing within the church.  This means we will continue to insist on the wearing of face masks and sitting at a distance from others not in our household.  We have restarted some hymn singing indoors - but still wearing masks.  Sadly, for the time being, there will be no tea or coffee after the service but, once outside the church, groups may talk together.  We consider that these rules are necessary to minimise the risks to all who come to our services, especially to those who are 'clinically vulnerable'.

If you are on holiday and plan to come on Sunday please let Ruth know on 01579 350230 (this helps us to arrange the seating in line with the Covid recommendations).

 Thursday December 2nd at 10.30am:    A  time of fellowship, reflection and prayer.  (A short informal service held every 2 weeks)


The Church buildings are now open for suitable community and other events. 

We remain available to offer help and prayer.   If you would like our help or our prayers - then please click here to leave a message


The displays, including the flower garden, outside our church buildings show that the Church is still alive.  We are here to pray for, and to help, our community.

Jesus said "Come to me, all of you who are tired and are carrying heavy loads. I will give you rest. 

Become my servants and learn from me. ...You will find rest for your souls." [Matthew 11 v28-29] 

Before the service

Before our Family Service

On Sunday mornings at 10.30 we usually have a Family Service with something for every age including a lively Junior Church.  We hope, when it is safe, to be able to resume having services and also tea and coffee and a chance to chat after the service.
