We welcome you to our worship this Sunday and through the week. 

If you are a visitor, we hope to see you again.


We will not be operating a booking system (unless we begin to exceed capacity at services) but will

continue to have a welcome steward who will take the details of those attending the service.

 

Please enter through the Welcome area. Face coverings are no longer required on church premises, but are still encouraged, particularly if you are likely to be in close contact with anyone who may be clinically vulnerable. We will continue to have spare disposable face masks available at church.

A prayer used by the Queen taken from the booklet “Our Faithful Queen”

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the way, the truth and the life: Keep me from wandering from your ways. Help me to trust you, the truth, and to be filled with your life. May your Holy Spirit teach me to live the right way, to be truthful, and to be filled with your life, living to please you. Amen
