Worship during the time of Covid 19 restrictions

 As you can imagine things are a tad different with respect to worship currently. We are holding three identical services per week - 8 AM Sunday, 10 AM Sunday and 11 AM Wednesday. We also Zoom broadcast the 10 AM Sunday service. The 10 AM service is currently at capacity. There are around twenty spaces available at eight and thirty on Wednesday. To reserve a space at one of our services or for the Zoom link please contact the office by phone or email us

Our Patronal Festival - June 24

Did you know we celebrate the birth of St John the Baptist - just after the spring solstice as the days are getting shorter and John proclaimed in John 3.30 "He must increase but I must decrease."?

And we celebrate the birth of Jesus after the winter solstice because the days are getting longer and "the true light has come into the world and the darkness will not overcome it".

All the other saints we commemorate only the date of their death - which we also do for St John the Baptist on Aug 29th.
