We are thrilled to be able to open our doors for public worship again on Sunday. If you would like to join us, please allow extra time to enter the building and be seated for the service. We are maintaining a strict 2m distance for all congregation throughout your visit and asking all to use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the time you are with us. Please either print your own order of service at home or bring it on your phone. There will be copies available for those who can’t do this. We will take your name and phone number at the door as part of the government Test and Trace initiative. The service will feel a little different, as movement will be restricted. We will be able to join in singing only in our heart.
