Coronavirus (COVID-19) has placed extraordinary restrictions on our lives. We are suffering a collective grief for the loss of life as we know it, and many are suffering the added grief of losing loved ones.
As a society, we are pulling together to help and support each other, and as a church community we want to do that too. We are mindful of both the government advice and our own commitment to the safety of our community. Although the government has suggested churches may re open for private prayer, we are unable to do this safely, so our building will not re-open for public worship for a while yet. Our pastoral support remains active, and our online and published worships are a wonderful way of keeping connected.
If you are struggling, our minister, Christine, is willing to listen and offer help and support. Perhaps you need some words you can pray, a comforting ear, or even practical support if you have lost a loved one. She is available by phone or email..

Our worship continues each week. Our ‘Stream Team’ are now streaming our online worship live from the church sanctuary each week. They have completed lengthy and detailed risk assessments and follow strict guidelines and social distancing rules. It is lovely to see inside the church building again, but good that we can stay safely in our homes whilst still sharing in worship together. You can either join our team of worship leaders each Sunday at 10am on our Youtube channel (or watch at during the week) or you can find material to read on screen or print out here.
Older services can be found here.
THERE IS HOPE!
This is a frightening time, when life feels dark for many of us. Easter reminds us that there is new life and hope in the death and resurrection of Jesus, and that light will always overcome darkness. In the Bible Jesus says to his followers, “Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)
Stay home, and Stay safe!
