COVID-19 / Coronavirus


Our church is now able to open for public worship. We ask that you follow all safety procedures

when joining us in worship

Face coverings are currently mandatory on public transport and will be mandatory in shops and in supermarkets from 24 July 2020. People are also encouraged to wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces where there are people they do not normally meet, such as a place of worship. We strongly advise that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.

During this time of national uncertainty and worry, we aim to provide pastoral care and support for all those affected by Coronavirus.  Below are some resources to help you worship and pray at home, and some contact details should you need any practical, spiritual or emotional support.

We will still be streaming Sunday and Wednesday Masses at our YouTube Channel.  Please join us there.
