Church Services

And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.


1 Corinthians 2:13

Service update

4 April, 2021

As we gradually come out of lockdown, we continue to hear positive news on the coronavirus figures and many of our congregation have already had their first vaccinations - some even their second, which is very encouraging. However, we must proceed with caution and stick to the guidelines during this transition time and our churches will remain closed for regular services until we can ensure that it is safe to reopen them for those attending and for those running the services. 

In the meantime our online services continue, as do our our monthly parish quizzes on Wednesday nights. Contact the Parish Office if you would like to join the quiz.
