Due to the National Lockdown and with the high infection rates in our area, services in our Benefice Churches have been suspended and we have decided that we will worship via the Virtual Vicar rather than gathering in our Church buildings. 

This is not what we would wish but we feel it is the best way to keep all of us safe and looking forward to the time when we will be able to meet again in our lovely old churches. You will find our service schedule below, but given the current situation, there may be last minute changes to the people involved in each service.

Please do join us online.

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.
