Please note we are preparing to announce details of measures reflected in recent decisions and recommendations to curb transmission of the Coronavirus between us.
The recent decisions and recommendations can be read in more detail via the following links :
While the church is not able to offer public worship, we still invite you to spend time in prayer and worship in your own home on Sunday morning at 10.00 using the Messenger, our service booklet, when Father Nigel will conduct a non-public service. It is our hope that the service will also be streamed – details of how to watch this will appear on our website.
During this time of anxiety and concern the church will be open daily from 09.00 – 17.00 for private prayer but with a limit of twenty people in the church at any one time
Regular and new members of the congregation should check for more information on the way ahead, in due course via

If you live alone, or might consider yourself to be in a vulnerable group, or are self-isolating: Please let Fr. Nigel or the Parish Office (020 8940 4616) know of your situation and we will try to offer appropriate support and connect you with someone who can help with shopping. You will be asked to give your permission for your contact details to be passed on to volunteers.
Volunteering: If you can volunteer to help those who live alone, or are elderly, or belong to a vulnerable group, or who are self-isolating, please provide your name and contact details on the list at the back of the church.

The programme for the Sunday Afternoon Concert Series is out and runs from Sunday 3rd May to Sunday 13th September. Running alongside this series the Church Hall opens its doors and offers delicious afternoon teas. Thank you all so much for your participation last summer and I am hoping that you will join in again this year. Newcomers are most welcome and those of you who have lapsed, please come back. Before I put up the sign-up charts, I would like the opportunity to meet up with those who wish to, on Sunday 5th April after the 10 o’ clock service. Bring along your suggestions or ideas you may have for attracting more customers. Otherwise I am happy for you to speak to me in person or to email me firstname.lastname@example.org Barbara.
All are welcome. No need to book. Come when you can.
It is good to share and explore our faith.
Part of the planting plans for the churchyard are a test area for wildflowers in the small strip between the path and the south wall as you go from the forecourt towards the south door. This involves spraying the grass in that area till there is just soil where seeds will be planted. It could look ugly at first but pretty as a picture as time goes by
