This will be a Family Service and we do hope that lots of families from the village and the other parishes across the benefice will want to come and join us. We’re planning to offer something for people of all ages.
Obviously, due to the current extraordinary circumstances and government regulations, we’ve had to make special arrangements to safeguard everyone’s health. We’ve reorganised the church to ensure appropriate distancing between family groups; anyone over the age of 11 will need to wear a face covering while inside the church and hand sanitizer, wipes and disposable gloves will be available for your use. We’ll be asking you to leave your contact details, which we’ll keep for 21 days.
Sadly, due to Church of England regulations, we won’t be able to sing, but we’re very pleased that Jerry Breslin will be with us to play the organ.
Weather permitting, outside in the churchyard we’ll be offering hot and cold drinks and a chance to stay and have a chat following the service.
We understand that some people don’t yet feel ready to come back to church services, but we’re very much looking forward to welcoming everyone who would like to come and join us.

Live Services in Churches across the Benefice from 2nd August

Further to the Prime Minister’s announcement that places of worship may re-open for worship from 4th July, it has been agreed that live services across the Benefice will resume in August. There will also be virtual services to cater for those who do not yet feel able to venture out to church.

With regard to live services there will be one service per day at one of the churches on the first four Sundays in August at 11.00am. Although there cannot be any singing, the organ will be played at various points. We are aware that there are many who have been shielding or in vulnerable groups who do not yet feel comfortable in going to public places. By the middle of August, we will have more of an idea as to what people might like and will be in a position to plan for services in September and beyond.
