Service Times

UPDATE JULY 2020: Following government guidelines, the church is now able to reopen for public prayer and worship. At the moment, we are offering one service on a Sunday morning at 9.45am at St Mary’s, and St Mary’s will also be open for private prayer on Wednesday mornings from 9am to 1pm. Worship continues online and we hope other service will return to the church buildings as soon as possible.

During the current coronavirus outbreak, there are no public gatherings for worship, and the church building remains closed to visitors. The church community remains very much open and active in prayer and service, so please contact us if we can help.

Some services are being streamed online via YouTube, and can also be accessed via telephone by dialling 03300 945 940 and using room number 24456910 and PIN 7760.
