LATEST UPDATE – Church Buildings and Services

We are open for Public Worship
You can join us for Service every Sunday at 10am at St John’s Church.

After 19th July we will be encouraging everyone to continue to act carefully and remain cautious, keeping yourself and others safe. Covid 19 has not gone away so please look for the precautions we encourage you to take. We have created a flyer so that you know our policy for keeping you and others safe when you attend church. See it here.

We will continue to live stream our Sunday services via our Facebook page. The service will also be available later (on catch up!) from our YouTube channel. So you can follow the service, the weekly service booklet is available on our website under ‘News and Info >  Notice Sheet’.

If you would like to arrange a wedding or christening, come along to Vestry Hour any Tuesday at St John’s Church Hall between 6pm and 7pm to speak to a member of our clergy team.

The church community is very much open and alive. There is still much on this website (see ‘Latest News’) and on our Facebook page to help worship, study and prayer. Please do have a look, there is something for every age!

Our Churches are a witness to God’s love in this community as we meet together for prayer and worship every Sunday and serve this community in all sorts of ways. You will find a warm welcome at any of our churches and we are always here for you.
