As a result of the present lockdown situation, the church is closed for services. The following message is from the wardens:
In consultation with the Wardens and Area Dean it has been decided that all services are CANCELLED until further notice. As you know most of the clergy that are helping out are retired – The Revd Terry Dyer has notified us that due to the present lockdown he wishes to have time off which we all understand.
To have the Church open for private prayer we would now have to have it manned all the time – as this is not possible the building will remain closed. The Churchyard is still open.
Thanks – keep safe. Posted on 7th January.
