We continue to offer onsite services, including Sunday mornings, at two or three of our churches. All services for the forthoming month are shown in the parish calendar and listed here.

Details of our COVID protocols from February 24th are available here.

Our church buildings remain open for private prayer – generally during daylight hours. However, there may be occasions when you will find the buildings locked. This may because the church is being used for a funeral and needs to be kept clean for this purpose. It won’t be possible to keep you updated with all the times that this will be. We apologise and thank you for your understanding.

We ask all visitors to abide by the following guidelines:

  1. Please do not enter the church if you have symptoms of Covid 19 or have been asked to self-isolate.
  2. Please use the hand sanitizer provided and wash your hands at home before and after visiting the church.
  3. Please visit only individually or with members of your household and do not arrange to meet others at the church.
  4. Please maintain 2 m distance  at all times and do not enter the building at the same time as others are entering or leaving.   
  5. We recommend that you wear a face mask inside the church unless you are exempt.
