Service Rota

Formal Covid restrictions ended some time ago, but we remain aware of the dangers of virus transmission. See Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for churches for updates on the current situation. If we need to keep our distance and to wear a face covering to make others feel safer, we will try to do so. Communion in both kinds is now allowed. Those who prefer just to receive the bread are given that option. Communion in both kinds by intinction (dipping the bread in the wine) is no longer permitted.

If there is no service in the local church, our policy in the Benefice is that everyone is welcome everywhere. If you need transport to come to a service, let us know.

Anyone is welcome to join in. It lasts about 20 minutes, there is a psalm, a reading, sometimes a bit of discussion, and we pray for the local church and community, and whatever else seems right.

Services in December

Communion services are tending to be limited within the Benefice to one each Sunday. Lay-led non-Eucharistic services are becoming more frequent. You can see below what is already planned.
