All four of our churches within the Team are currently open for regular communal worship ~ everyone is welcome at any of our churches.
Please note that it is a requirement to wear a mask (unless exempt) while in our buildings and we also request that you respect other people's space while in church. Hand sanitiser is still available on entry and we ask that if you are feeling unwell, then please don't attend.
Bread is available during communion services, but currently the chalice is not offered due to covid concerns.
