Forthcoming Church Services around the Parish

(Information updated 12th November 2020 at 5.05pm)

As some of our special services are very popular, we have made the decision to introduce booking for these to ensure safe numbers in Church. Bookings for St Andrews and St James special events should be made online on this site or by email to the Parish administrator

As we have limited capacity for our special events at the moment, we will prioritise families with children to attend the Christingle services. Thank you for your understanding.

There will be a YouTube recorded service every Sunday during November. Please see the Worship Resources pages for these.

There will be a quiet, short service of night prayer (compline) every Thursday starting 5th November on Zoom. It will start at 8pm and will be no more than 15 minutes. For the Zoom link and other details, please contact Rev Karen. Download the order of service here: Night Prayer Compline
