Covid-19 update. 
For the foreseeable future, services will be a little different. For example, there is no congregational singing and we need to observe social distancing. You will also notice some other changes: for example, the chairs are spaced out, hand sanitiser is provided and we are not able to offer refreshments afterwards. We may also need to limit numbers if it becomes hard to socially distance. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer dedicated facilities (such as toys or a play area) for children.

You are welcome to attend either service or, if you prefer, to join the online service. If you do attend a service please consider your own safety and that of others: do not come if you or anyone in your household is unwell, make sure you keep 2 metres apart. Face coverings are now mandatory for worshippers, unless exempt. If you are in a vulnerable group, you may prefer to attend the 8am service, which is quieter.

The Goose Green Centre is currently closed. We are open for private prayer on Thursdays from 12pm to 2pm. Our rhythm of prayer, celebrating the eucharist and reaching out to the most vulnerable in our society continues. Please contact us if you would like more information.

Parish Finances. The pandemic is touching us all in different ways and although we continue to strive to be at the heart of our community, we are also being affected by this unprecedented situation. We are no longer receiving income from the hire of the Goose Green Centre nor are we receiving offerings in the collection plate on a Sunday. We have tried to reduce our costs as much as possible but just reducing our costs will not be enough to cover our outgoings. We understand that for many these are uncertain times financially but if you feel you can support us by making a donation, no matter how small, we would be extremely grateful. Please visit our Giving page here.

Thank you.
