Covid Update: from Thursday 27th January 2022

The Government have announced that from next Thursday it will no longer be compulsory to wear a face covering in church, but we will continue to encourage you to do so. We will ensure that those who wish to be socially distanced are able to, in order to attend church.

Please also remember to stay at home if you are not well, even if it is just a cold.

Thank you for keeping everyone safe.

Anne-Marie, Team Rector
