News and Comment


Though there are no longer any statutory restrictions affecting public worship, we are advancing cautiously in consultation with the local congregation. Communion remains in one kind, most people prefer to wear masks and to keep their distance. We are now allowed to sing, provided that people are happy with this.

Remembrance Sunday on the 14th November brought a good number to the Service of Commemoration led by the Reverend Janice Sharp. As it was not possible, for safety reasons, to gather at the War Memorial, a Dedication in the Church grounds followed with two minutes' silence at 11am and wreaths were laid, before they were taken to the Memorial. Duncan Kirk's display of poppies and profile figures in the Church grounds had attracted a good deal of attention in previous days, including visits from BBC Look North and Radio Humberside. (See pictures below) Inside the Church, the Remembrance Flower Festival also offered refreshments and fascinating displays of memorabilia from the WW2 period.
