We are delighted to announce that we are beginning a gentle and gradual return to live church services.  We will continue to offer some form of worship on the Virtual Vicar for those people who do not feel they can safely return to live church yet.  All previous Virtual Vicar services will remain available – when we started recording them last Easter we certainly didn’t envisage we would still be in lockdown a year later!

Listed below are the services we are currently planning.  These do depend on how the Roadmap out of lockdown progresses and may be subject to change at short notice.

If you are intending to come to any of the services please will you let one of the Churchwardens know  – you will find their contact details here

Coming to Communion

Sometimes people are put off coming to a communion service because they are not confirmed; however all are welcome to come forward for a blessing, even if they are not confirmed – usually people let the minister know this by bringing their service sheet or book with them in their hands so that the priest knows they would like a blessing.

A blessing is when God is asked to come and be present on and in a person through the action of his Spirit. Children are also welcome to come and receive a blessing.

We welcome all those who are accepted in full membership
of their own churches to receive Holy Communion

Home Communion

If you are unable to get out and would like Home Communion, it may be possible for your local Churchwarden to arrange it.  Please contact the appropriate Churchwarden.
