Local CoVid-19 Info
Following the easing of restrictions to church buildings due to Covid-19 the PCC are pleased to say that the Church will be open for private prayers on Wednesdays between 11 and 12 am. Please use the hand sanitiser on entry and observe social distancing. If you wish to go to the church at any other time please call David Wood to arrange on 01398371240.
In these extraordinary times, we’d like to do everything we can to help, and to make the current ‘lockdown’ as unchallenging as possible. We are aware that efforts are already being made by villagers to help one another, and we’d urge everyone to give a moment’s thought to anyone who might need a phone call, or an offer of some kind of help.
