This Sunday we say ‘farewell’ to Revd Andrew Orton and wish Carl and himself God’s blessing as Andrew retires. Andrew will be our preacher and will be exploring St Paul’s encouragement to ‘let love be genuine’.

Please join us next Sunday in the church or online at 10:30am. Please contact us beforehand to reserve seating for you and your bubble. You now have the option to have a free seat either side of your bubble for limited distancing or you can ask for socially distanced seating. Please reserve your place in church by Email to our reservations manager, stating how many people will be with you in your “bubble”. Reservations are taken from midday on Monday until midday Friday.

In your email:
Tell us if you want to be socially distanced (2 empty chairs or 1 metre away from another bubble)
Tell us if you want an empty seat next to you.
Tell us if you will sit anywhere and next to anyone.

Please note protective measures at our services are being relaxed gradually over the summer:

  • Please continue to wear your mask in the church especially for singing, unless you have a medical exemption
  • Please use sanitiser and provide your details for our track and trace records.
  • Please be respectful to those who are not yet comfortable with the relaxation of social distancing requirements and may wish to maintain 2 metres distance

For those unable to attend church in person please watch our service recording online
