The Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the closure of churches and church buildings for the forseeable future and the government has directed that people should stay at home and not congregate, until further notice. Consequently, this period of self isolation has led to the emergence of online services. Our Rector, Revd Ian Welch is now holding online services at 10am every Sunday and you can join these using the Zoom, a popular online meetings application. Instructions on how to join a service are emailed by Revd Ian on a regular basis.
