We will be having ONE in-person service available each week (either the 8.00am or 9.15am service) which will also be Livestreamed via YouTube. The 11am service will be Livestreamed via Facebook each week excluding the first few weeks of July when there WILL NOT BE A Livestreamed 11.00am service. There have however been 11am services recorded throughout the pandemic so please feel free to watch older ones from our Facebook page or You Tube channel. You don't need to have a Facebook Account to view any of our live or back catalogue of services.
For the in-person service each week, if you wish to attend in person, please remember you will need to wear a facemask throughout unless you have a medical exemption and will not be able to participate in congregational singing. For the 9.15am services, 6 members of our choir will lead the sung worship.
For ALL Services, we will be in the Nave (the main body of the church) in order to maximise the number of congregants which will be 40. We are not ticketing at this stage- should demand far outweigh capacity we will consider either ticketing or seeing if there are any ways of increasing capacity.
We hope that for those of you who have expressed a strong desire to return to church, you will choose to do so, even if the service offered is not your normal preference. Holy Communion will be available at every service and so do take the opportunity to worship weekly in person if you wish to.
For those who wish to remain worshipping from your homes for the moment, the services will all be broadcast LIVE ON YOUTUBE-
Click on the Live Box above the videos and you should see the service about to begin/ in progress in order to click on it. You can choose to worship in real-time with us or alternatively the services will remain on our Channel once they have ended so that you could choose to worship along at some other time during the day or week.
The pattern therefore will be:
18th July - 9.15am Holy Communion in-person (up to 40) & YouTube Livestream
25th July - 9.15am Holy Communion in-person (up to 40) & YouTube Livestream
1st August - 8.00am Holy Communion in-person (up to 40) & YouTube Livestream
8th August - 9.15am Holy Communion in-person (up to 40) & YouTube Livestream
15th August - 9.15am Holy Communion in-person (up to 40) & YouTube Livestream
Please feel free to visit our You Tube channel to view other services from this year.
