Reintroducing the Common Cup

From today, you can once again choose to take communion as both bread and wine. You can read our full update on this, or watch the video.

If you would prefer to only receive communion in one kind (as bread only) this is also considered to be full communion by the Church of England.

Real Advent Calendars

We’re once again selling the only Advent calendars to tell the Christmas story – Real Advent Calendars. Available from James for £4.50 each.

You can also pick up one of our selection of books, or an Advent candle to mark the days as we approach Christmas.

Our Christmas services

As we rapidly approach the season of Advent, it’s time to let everyone know about our Christmas services! Take a look at our Christmas Services page to see what’s happening when and where.

An update on our coronavirus measures

We continue to recommend the wearing of a face covering if you are able whilst in church and moving around our Community Centre. We also suggest that you continue to take precautions such as taking regular rapid lateral flow tests, keeping your distance, and being respectful of the wishes of others. You’ll still need to sanitise your hands as you enter the building, avoid handshakes during the Peace.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, remember that you must self-isolate and get a PCR test. As always, we will continue to stream all our services live on our website and YouTube channel, as well as make them available to listen to later by phone or podcast.

We are still keeping a close eye on things such as infection rates, and may make other changes to our rules in the future.

Join us after the service for refreshments

You are warmly invited to join us after the service for refreshments in our Community Centre.
