Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus we have now been instructed to close our church building. Unfortunately it must remain locked until further notice.
However, the Church continues to be active. Morning and Evening Prayer continue to be said, the Eucharist is being celebrated, and prayers offered for the wellbeing of all those who are suffering, and for all who live in the parish. Funerals and emergency baptisms continue subject to certain restrictions.
