We have suspended public worship in church again but the church will remain open for private prayer.

It is with a heavy heart that we have taken the decision to suspend public worship in church for the time being. We are in Tier 4; the hospitals are in danger of being overwhelmed and the new strains of the virus are very easily spread, so it seems inappropriate to ask people to gather, even in a socially distanced way with all precautions in place.

The church building will continue to be open for private prayer – please observe the requested behaviour and do all you can to keep other people safe – and Worship on the Web will of course continue online.

Online services are on the Worship on the Web page.

Services in church have been suspended for the time being.

Worship on the Web continues to be available online and on the Dial a Service phone line (01902 906585). The church is open for private prayer on most days.

The Worship on the Web service can be viewed online from 10 am each Sunday.

The Vicar is continuing to offer daily prayer from the Vicarage which is streamed live on Facebook. Find these on Worship on the Web.

Find Virtual Sunday School each week on our Sunday School on the Web page.

“Dial a Service” phone line. You can listen to our latest service by phoning 01902 906585 (calls charged at normal rate).

Following Christ in the footsteps of St Chad,
by living out our faith;
taking the church to the community;
and growing the church.

Although the church building is not open as much as normal the church community remains active. Prayer and worship are provided online and all are welcome to join us. Go to the Worship on the Web page.
