We're a small and friendly village church. We believe that the message of Jesus Christ is good news for everyone so we aim to offer a variety of services to cater for all.
Our reordering project is complete! We now have a toilet, a small kitchenette in the church, and space for social events and for school use, as well as improved wheelchair access. As soon as COVID circumstances permit, we'll hold our long-delayed opening celebration service to which all will be warmly invited.
Circumstances have changed significantly for the better since 10 January, with infection rates falling steadily and with many people having had their first dose of vaccine, so the PCC has decided that we should once again welcome congregations in church at morning services, details below, although we intend to keep this under constant review in the light of experience and of the general virus situation.
The church is well equipped with hand sanitiser which everyone is asked to use on the way in, and seating is marked out to ensure safe distancing. We're now required to wear a mask in church or in the church hall for worship. When a minister or a reader is addressing the congregation, though, we make sure that extra distancing provides protection instead, as this helps those who lip-read or whose hearing is less than 100%. If you wish, please feel free to bring your own Bible. We hear pre-recorded hymns, but we're not permitted to sing.
