Broadcast Sunday Services

Our vicar, Rev Dr Lisa Cornwell, is preparing services of worship to be posted on this website for each Sunday. Orders of service and the collect and readings sheet will be available as links in the table below for you to use to follow the service. Please choose a time to suit yourselves.

Normally we would be distributing palm crosses during the service. As we cannot do that this year, we thought you might like to make your own. Click here for instructions on how to make a palm cross. If you do not have a palm tree, you will need a long strip of card!

Keeping in touch

It is important that although we cannot gather, we keep our sense of community. In these changed times we are seeking new ways to keep in touch with our christian community. The website has been redesigned to focus on private worship and prayer, resources for people at home and serving the community in new ways. We will be sending out regular communications to all those who agree by email. These emails will provide links to the website where appropriate. We are also using facebook and twitter to communicate. Please contact the ChurchOffice if you wish to be added to our email distribution or if you need help or advice.

Resources for Worship and Prayer at home are available on this website.
