Lord, help us to be people full of hope. Give us strength to keep going.  Amen 

Covid Provisions - what to expect when you come to a service 
Masks: While the wearing of masks is no longer mandatory, we recommend that they are worn in the Church, particularly when entering and leaving it.

Social distancing: As a small church we cannot guarantee socially distanced seating, but we ask our congregations to maintain distance from others when possible.

Hand Sanitiser: Hand sanitiser is provided at the Church entrance; we encourage those entering the Church to use it.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or for any further information.

Joining a Zoom Service
At present, all our services are only in the Church and not streamed.  However, we now have a broadband connection which will enable us to stream services.  When/if we do we will not give the Zoom invitations on our web site as we have been advised that this can lead to possible disruption by those outside our community.  The invitations will sent out by Mary Hustings by email to those on her Christ Church list - or you can ask her for one, click here for her email.
