Church Life in Tier 2
- Due to our careful social distancing measures, church services are able to go ahead as normal in all Tiers.
- Small groups are now encouraged to be online so will not happen in the building. Please be in contact with the organiser of any small groups you are part of for more details.
- With tighter restrictions over winter now is a time for us to look for ways for us to show care for each other such as the Faith Companions network. If you would like to be in a Faith Companions group please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
