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

Sunday, 13 June 2021

Last week, I spoke about how the ‘Ordinary Time’ season that we are in, can still be a season of growth for God, if we are open to him. Our symbolic colour of green encourages us to think about how our discipleship can go deeper during this, often quiet, time of the Church’s season.

Service update

17 May, 2021

Our churches are now open for Sunday services.

As current restrictions are still in place, our services will continue in 'Covid' format. That means social distancing still applies, our services will be slightly shorter than usual and we are not singing in church. Face masks are also required when you are in church.


Services will still be held at 8.30am and 10.30am at All Hallows and 9.30am at St Mary Magdalene. 


Those wishing to attend will need to contact the Churchwardens, Jacquie or Fiona, to book a place and we are introducing a cut off time for bookings, so please ensure that you book your place by 5pm on the Thursday before each Sunday. Unfortunately bookings after this time cannot not be accepted.
