Coronavirus update

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 23rd March, the Archbishops have written to clergy in support of the measures, requiring that churches must now close both for private worship and public services.
Our church buildings are therefore now closed for public worship, private prayer and all other meetings and activities except for vital community services until further notice.

Past Events

The Personal Prayer of
Mary Sumner

All this day, O Lord, let me touch as many lives as possible for thee and every life I touch, do thou by this spirit quicken, whether through the word I speak, the prayer I breathe, or the life I live.   Amen.
