COVID-19 Update

Dear Church,

I want to cordially invite you to come and be church together on Sunday 1st August. There will be two services on that day at 8.30am and 10.15am IN CHURCH! Here are some of the things we want you to be aware of.

Sadly, we cannot quite come back without any restrictions as we know that cases of the COVID virus are going up and so although we want to give ourselves opportunity to worship together, we need to do that cautiously and responsibly.

  • There will be a mixture of seating available so that those who want to remain socially distanced can do so.
  • The government advises that we continue to wear masks at social gatherings inside, and so when in the building and during worship, we will still be required to wear masks unless there are medical reasons not to do so.
  • To celebrate coming back together and also because I turn 50 that week, after the 10.15am service, probably from 11.30am, we will then be gathering outside in the Vicarage garden and paddock for a picnic (weather permitting). There will be enough space to spread out; all we ask is that you bring some food and drink and something to sit on.
  • I know for some of us we will not be comfortable at the thought of gathering inside the church building at the moment and if this is you, please consider just coming to the picnic to see and meet people outside after the service.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Email:

New Wine starts on Thursday 29th July and runs for 6 days online. There is a whole load of free content for adults, youth and kids and they will also be running a range of seminars which you can access on New Wine online with an annual membership of £70. Can I encourage you wholeheartedly to engage with New Wine in some way. See the full programme for this year here.

I do hope you will be able to join us this Sunday 25th July as we worship together with Kids’ Church at 9.45am and then our 10.15am Morning Worship on Facebook Live:

We will be finishing our series on Mental Health and Wellbeing and our theme this coming week will be ‘Strength to Carry On – Building Resilience‘.

Remember for those of you who do not use FACEBOOK we are now streaming the 10.15am service simultaneously on YOUTUBE. Please click on this link if you prefer to watch us live there:

Every blessing,
