Communication update regarding COVID-19

25th March 2020


The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

Our website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.

The vicar/churchwardens of this church can be contacted in an emergency by telephoning:

Karen Mitchell (Area Dean) 07834 322943

Cathy Juniper (Churchwarden) 01329 313408 

Richard Evans (Churchwarden) 07766 903377


“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” 

To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
