Public worship is permitted under the current lockdown. Everyone considering attending church should make their own decision about whether it is right for them to do so. And the current restrictions must be observed at all times. This page will be updated as things change, so please keep checking regularly.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, we are able to do less than we normally do. We ask that you should wear a face covering throughout the service. Children are always welcome.
Despite the restrictions, this is our worship. God is with us.

Christians pray to God. That’s because Christianity isn’t a theory or a philosophy. It’s a relationship with God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Prayer can take many forms. All prayer is being aware of God. Silent prayer is powerful. Words help too. You can use your own words in a kind of honest conversation with God. In this Daily Prayer, we use structured prayers to help us.
To begin with, Daily Prayer can feel a bit ‘wordy’. But relax. Let the words wash over you like the lyrics of a song. If your mind wanders, don’t tell yourself off. Just come back to the awareness of God who is with you wherever you are.
We use the Morning Prayer of the Church of England. You can simply watch and pray with us. But if you want to participate more deeply, you can
