Our Buildings our open:

Due to the latest lockdown restrictions, places of worship are not permitted to have gathered public worship.
However, we can use our buildings for personal prayer. If you would like to visit one of our buildings as a quiet and still place to pray, they will be open:
St Michael’s Wednesdays 10:30 – 11:30
St Paul’s Sundays 15:00 – 16:00
St James Sundays 15:00 – 16:00

We look forward to re-opening for ‘public worship’ as soon as we are permitted to do so by the government.

As an inclusive church everyone is always welcome at the services in any of our churches.
