Church Services in early 2021

All church services in the Deanery are stopped. Because of the national lockdown and the ‘Stay at Home’ message, we have made the difficult decision to suspend group worship in our church buildings.

Government regulations do in fact, allow worship to take place inside churches. But the arrival of a new strain of the virus which is easily transmitted, and rising case numbers here, mean we do not feel confident to safely gather in our churches at present.

But churches are open for private prayer

When visiting our churches, please be more vigilant in sanitising your hands, especially when entering and leaving. Please try not to touch any surfaces within the buildings and wear a face mask.

Sunday morning service

This will be on our YouTube Channel at 10.00am in the weeks ahead. 

Sunday afternoons

Join us for our online service led by Rev Prebendary Nicholas Lowton. See our latest NEWS for details. 

Mission and Vision

Growing Christianity, connecting people to faith

Our vision is to respond in love to the stirrings of God’s presence. And to grow in wisdom, compassion and praise.

Throughout the ages God has invited us to a life of trust by showing what kind of God he is, through the beauty of creation and his perfect image, Jesus of Nazareth.

The beginning of faith is to trust in a loving God who knows us more than we know ourselves. And from that step a journey begins. As we travel, we believe the Holy Spirit will lead us, to know more and more of God’s love.
