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 have recommenced in St Andrew’s at 8 am each Sunday, initially Morning Prayer, but Holy Communion each week from August 16th onwards. With social distancing, the congregation is limited to 12 people, so if you are not a regular attender you are asked to let Gillian Newton know if you plan to come (on 01722 433366 or text 07811 505041).
