Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Updated March 2021 - We are currently closed for Public Worship
However, we are very pleased to tell you that we plan to resume public worship in church on Pentecost Sunday, which is Sunday 23rd May. This is of course subject to any changes in circumstances or the restrictions by the Government.
As you will expect, we won’t be able to go back straight away to how things used to be. Pentecost Sunday will be the start of the next stage in our journey of Seeking God Together. We will need to wear masks and be socially distanced. Numbers in church will still be limited so we will be operating a booking system again. We will post more details nearer the time.
Until then, whilst our church remains closed, we invite you to join us on Zoom or say a short service at 10.00 am in your home as a way of worshipping together. Details on our Worship at Home page. Please also visit our Facebook page for more regular posts of prayer and worship.
St Andrew's will continue to follow Church of England guidance and policy during the current situation, details of which can be found by following this link.
A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
