Join us in Holy Week 3 April 2020
I hope you are all OK and managing to cope with this lockdown.
Obviously, as our churches are closed for public worship, we are unable to offer all the usual Holy Week Services in our buildings. However, we have been experimenting with live streaming our services in You Tube and will be offering services in Holy Week as outlined below. The services will be based around the theme of ‘Where were we?’
For each service, there is a link which you just click on and follow. Please also see the attached video message above and printed material (see link below) to accompany the different services.

Church Buildings Close 24 March 2020
The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
