Latest on Mass Arrangements
As of 5th November, England is now once again in a period of strict lockdown, and we are not allowed to celebrate Mass with a congregation, with the exception of funerals.
Therefore, from that date, Sunday and weekday Mass will only be accessible online, through Live Streaming.
We may be able to keep the church open for private prayer, but this depends on the availability of stewards.
Please see the Mass/Services page for full details of Masses and opening times for private prayer. All times may change at short notice.
Please do not come to church for any other reason.
The government intends to relax the restrictions in early December, but this cannot be guaranteed.
We are now able to take one-off donations by credit or debit card through Dona, an organisation recommended by the Diocese. Please click HERE to make a donation.
