COVID-19 – Coronavirus – Announcement 18th March 2020

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

Wildflower Test

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

The Royal Gallery project – phase 1

The refurbishment of the staircase and the rooms behind the Royal Gallery has now started and is expected to take 6 – 8 weeks. Once the work is completed we shall have a place to display the pictures and artefacts which have been stored until now, the choir will have a warmer and pleasant place to prepare for services and there will be extra space for meetings and other activities.
