If you attend the 10.30am service please be aware that this will be livestreamed via Zoom for those at home who feel they are not ready to resume public worship.
- We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation locally and be guided by any changes in guidance, and therefore may seek to reimpose some restrictions if it is deemed necessary and can be justified.

Funerals - The Church of England has produced a simple reflection that can be used at home on the day of a funeral you can't attend. It's so difficult when you can’t go to a funeral, whether for family, friend or neighbour. Many are facing this in the current crisis, so this short reflection has been specially written by a vicar for you to do at home, alone or with those who share your home. You might ask others to take part at the same time from their home. It is available to see here.
