Our services now take place without specific Covid-19 restrictions. Nevertheless, the wearing of masks around the building, or during services, remains a matter of personal choice; and hand gel will be available for 'self-service' use by those who so wish.
Do join us in the church hall for refreshments after the service.

Afternoon Tea and Advent Carols
Our ‘Tea-pot' services are monthly, informal alternatives to our Evening services. Please arrive in the Church Hall from 3.30pm onwards ready for a formal start at 4pm.
There will be tables of six, and we will serve afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes and tea. At about a quarter to five, we shall give out hymn books and sing some favourite Advent Carols. Between carols there will be a bible reading and perhaps a short talk about it, and later a time of prayer, and we will finish with the Grace at about 5.30pm.
Do come along and enjoy a time of relaxed fellowship and worship!
