Worship during July and August

We have regular worship each Sunday, Wednesday and Friday.  During July and August most 10 am services on a Sunday will also be live-streamed on YouTube. 

While Covid restrictions are no longer compulsory, for the foreseeable future the PCC has decided to maintain the following measures to ensure peace of mind and safety for all:

  • A socially distanced zone at services.

  • Provision of hand sanitiser on entrance to church and in church.

  • Choice to wear a mask in church.

  • Continuation of a track and trace list for all services.

  • Continued live-streaming of the 10 am Sunday service.
