We will be updating this page as new guidance becomes available. Please check regularly for updates.

Due to the risks surrounding COVID 19 the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have suspended all Public Worship in our churches and informed us to shut all our church buildings.

Resources for prayer, Bible Reading and sermons will be made available on this website and through our social media outlets weekly.  Please look out for them and use them.

In these times please look out for your family and friends and those in the community – love your neighbour is most appropriate now!
