Church information during the Coronavirus emergency

There can be no doubt that we have entered an extraordinary period when faith communities are being asked to consider their activities and health security of premises.

 Our church is  following guidance issued on 17th March by the Methodist Church. You can view this at  

From Sunday March 22nd we will no longer be holding church services until further notice. 

We will publish dates for recommencing services on this website when Government guidelines permit

 Churches are not defined by the four walls in which they meet but are a community of Christian believers who value each other and all people we serve in our locality. We will keep this page updated with information about our church services and other information. 

As a church we have been looking at ways of developing our web site to maintain our worshiping community and to devise ways in which we can reach vulnerable groups who might not have access to the internet and our website.
