Preacher: Rev. John Yarrien      

Additional Information: 


Our live services, with a preacher in the church, continue to evolve in the light of updated national guidance on Covid-19.


Please note that the regular Sunday morning services currently begin at 10.00am and 11.15am, and last about 35-40 minutes. In line with changes to government requirements, live singing by the congregation will now be allowed, though everyone will be asked to remain seated, not to sing too loudly, and ideally to sing with masks still in place. Although, legally, people can make their own choice about wearing masks, the Stewards very strongly recommend that, for the time being, you continue to wear your masks as you enter church and during the service. Use of hand gel will also still be required as you enter.


To retain partial social distancing, we will continue to have a maximum of 45 people in the church, so you will still have to book if you want to attend the service. Some ‘walk in’ seats will now be available at the 11.15 service, but it will be best to book wherever possible.


To book a place, please contact Wendy Hilton by 6pm on the day before. The preferred contact method is email: you can send an email via the Contacts page, confirming your name, contact details, which service you wish to attend, and how many seats you want to book. Alternatively, you can call the Church Office on (01305) 457477 and leave a message with the same information: name, contact details, which service and how many seats are being requested. The answerphone for this number will be checked daily. Church Members with access to the Church Address Book can also use the personal details listed to make direct contact with Wendy.


Refreshments are now being offered between the two services, starting at 10.30: please see page 2 of the June news sheet for full details on how this will work.
