Coronavirus


Following Government and Church of England advice, social distancing and hand sanitising is required in call church buildings, and those attending for worship are required to wear face coverings unless they are in one of the exempt categories and no singing or raised voices are allowed. Please follow all signs and instructions and maintain social distancing if you need to queue to enter the Church building.

St Andrew’s can be visited  for private prayer  but on Wednesday to Saturday mornings only. Please follow the instructions you will find  on entering church (such as leave the door open for ventilation, hand sanitise, leave contact details in case required for track and trace).

Services are in St Andrew’s at 8 am each Sunday morning and at 10am on Friday mornings on 4th, 11th and 18th December. With social distancing, the congregation  is limited to 12 people, so if you are not a regular attender you are asked to let Hilary Bird know at hilary.churchwarden.bemerton@protonmail.com.

St Michael’s have a 10.30am Sunday service each week. Morning Prayer is also prayed at 8am Monday to Friday and 10am on Saturday. Evening Prayer is prayed at 5pm Tuesday to Friday.

All our services are also on Zoom and the link can be obtained by emailing the Churchwardens or the Rector.

The Community Fridge is open in St Michael’s Community Centre from 10am – 12noon Monday to Thursday. The community fridge has free, near-its-use-by date food to help reduce the amount of food going to landfill. If you are able to give a donation you are welcome to do so but our main purpose is to help those who do not have any food. If you have no food and cannot afford to buy some it may be possible to access the fridge outside of these times. Please email Rev’d Kevin Martin, who is our Rector, to try and arrange a timed appointment for you to attend to collect some food. Kevin’s email address is rector.bemerton@protonmail.com.
