Climate Sunday

Attending in Person
Although all restrictions have now lifted we have decided to make moves out of the restrictions in a slower way in order to think of those who are more vulnerable in these times and also with rising cases at the moment:

  • We ask that you still wear masks when in church - although this is not mandatory.
  • We can sing but hope that this can be done from behind masks for now.
  • We will continue to keep some distance from other household groups and wave or smile at the Peace.
  • We will continue to only take the bread at Communion.

Watching remotely:

  • The 9:30am service will be live on YouTube (click on picture above), and also available to watch later.
  • The service can also be listened to by telephone from Monday morning on 01453 708200.
  • If you have any feedback on the on-line services live streaming please email or call Fiona.
  • If you, or someone you know, would like any help with Facebook, Zoom or YouTube, please let us know and we'll do our best.
