Passcode: 712158


A very warm welcome to all who worship with us this morning.

Parish Council has agreed the following:

  • Masks are no longer required to be worn in church.
  • The best protection against the Covid 19 virus is vaccination including two booster shots. This is our first and best line of defence and we urge all parish members to protect your health by being fully vaccinated
  • If you wish to wear a mask to give yourself added protection you should feel absolutely free to do so.
  • If, after the vaccination and mask wearing options have been considered you remain uncomfortable about being in church where masks are no longer required, use @church via Zoom until you feel confident enough to be in church with or without a mask.
  • As always, if you’re feeling unwell please stay at home, see your doctor if necessary, and use @ Church via Zoom.

Don is on leave September 26th – October 10th. If you have any urgent pastoral concerns during this time, please contact Irene 332 7306.
