Coronavirus Last updated 1st June 2021

We have had the joy of gathering together since the start of the year, seeing more of our Church family again, and have recently completed our building project to expand our capacity, and enable us to better serve the wider community. We would love to get to share this with you!

We insist that all attending our services in person keep to the guidelines when attending Places of worship. These include:

  • Frequent Hand sanitising
  • Wearing a face covering, unless an exemption applies
  • Maintaining social distancing at all times
  • Avoiding talking with people outside your bubble while in the building
  • No congregational singing

If you feel even the slightest bit unwell, please do not attend.
At the moment our services are at a limited capacity, in accordance with Government guidelines, so we would encourage you to please sign up if you would like to join us.

We meet for our morning service at 10:30am and our evening service at 6:30pm. You can sign up for these here:

We wanted to be more inclusive for families at a time when we have been unable to run our Sunday School groups, and so have been running an ‘Early Church’ service for the little ones to bring their parents to. We learn actions to songs, do crafts and hear all about Jesus! This runs for around half an hour, starting at 9:15am every Sunday morning.
You can sign up for this here:

This information is subject to change, depending on Government guidelines, so please check back for updates, as we hope to have ministries up and running again as soon as we can!

For those that cannot attend in person, we are still live-streaming our services on our YouTube Channel.

Recordings of our Sunday Services are also all available on our website.

At the moment our midweek meetings are online, but our Friday youth groups are now able to take place at Church. For further details about these meetings please contact the Church Office.

Coronavirus Previous update posted 3rd August 2020

Though Government restrictions on churches meeting were relaxed on 4th July, we do not plan to hold live services in our building in the near future.

A serious number of risks remain, and services under these conditions will be very different. Whilst most of our meetings and groups are continuing online, some will pause during August as is our usual custom for school holidays. Our morning services are available on our YouTube channel and recordings uploaded to the website. In August, a shorter evening service is provided live to join on Video Conferencing only, and these evening services are not available on Youtube or the website.

Contact details for our meetings and groups are shown on the homepage. We would be delighted if you could join us. Eventually we shall meet in the church building once again, and will provide further updates.

Coronavirus Original announcement 27th March 2020

All meetings, gatherings and events cancelled until further notice

Following government advice on the current Coronavirus emergency we have cancelled all gatherings and events until further notice.

During this time we are making use of our existing YouTube Channel where services will be uploaded each Sunday having been recorded by a small team in the week. Audio only recordings will also continue to be published in MP3 format on the Sermons Download page and CDs are being posted to members without internet access.

We have also begun a weekly podcast released on Wednesdays, and some meetings are continuing with videoconferencing.

We would encourage us all to continue to “reach up, reach across and reach out” even within the constraints of the current crisis.

Please do contact the Church Office if you require help with anything during this period.
