We are aware of the serious impact that Coronavirus is having both on the health of the nation and also on many who may already feel lonely and isolated. As a church we are following the Church of England guidance about Coronavirus.
Our regular worship services and regular social activities are all stopping until further notice.
Our church buildings will be open for individuals who would like to come and pray (St Mary’s on Wednesdays from 9-10am and St Alban’s on Fridays from 9-10am), with people requested to keep at least 2 metres apart from others.
We are thinking about how we continue serving our community and loving our neighbour; and how we can help support those in our locality who are lonely, vulnerable or isolated.
As a church we will seek to do all we can to make sure that those alone and in need are looked out for, and we would ask you to partner with us in looking out for friends and neighbours. We seek to offer a calm peace in the midst of the storm.
Do keep in touch with us via our facebook page, and please let us know if there is anything particular we might be able to help with. You can contact us on: 023 8055 4231
