The church will continue to be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from 10.00am to 5.00pm.We have set up a dedicated area for private prayer in the Lady Chapel. Please follow the guidance displayed in church so that the building can be used as safely as possible by yourself and others.
The PCC have taken the decision not to resume services during August.
A comprehensive risk-assessment is currently being undertaken to determine how and when we can safely return to worship within the building. We will update you further next month. In the meantime we will continue with the arrangements outlined below.
Our weekly newsletter includes a short form of worship that can be used at home. This is distributed as widely as possible and can also be accessed from our website: if you ‘hover’ over the ‘news/forthcoming events’ tab at the top of the page, a menu will drop down & you can then click on ‘weekly news sheet’.
