Services in the building are currently suspended until further notice. Our services take place at 11am on Sunday mornings and are streamed online. You are welcome to join us via our live broadcast on Facebook as we come together in worship.

 

Following the announcement on 22 February of the four-step roadmap out of lockdown, we currently anticipate that the church buildings will reopen for Sunday services when Step 2 is reached (no earlier than 12 April), subject to guidance from the Methodist Church and URC.
