Generous God,

you give us gifts and make them grow:

though our faith is small as mustard seed,

make it grow to your glory

and the flourishing of your kingdom;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.




Please pray for those who are ill


Karen Goodall Brown

We remember those whom we know,

who are suffering in sickness or adversity,

and those who especially need our prayers at this time.

Also the families of those who have died.

Regulations around Public Worship


Regulations around Public Worship will be changing from 19th July.

The Church of England guidelines were updated at 5pm on Friday so we have not been able to undertake a full risk assessment process yet.


Please continue to behave cautiously when meeting in our church building. We will ask people/groups to be spaced at 2m where practicable. Face coverings will not be compulsory by law, but you might choose to wear one. We expect that there will be singing on 25th July but that will be in the context of any new guidelines issued between now and then.


Procedures will be examined and revised beginning the week of 26th July.


Tea with the Vicar

There will be no ZOOM ‘Tea with the Vicar’ next week, Thursday 22nd July.
