Latest on Mass Arrangements

As England gradually emerges from the latest full lockdown, the church is also gradually reopening. You may now attend all weekday and Sunday Masses. Numbers remain limited for now to ensure safe distancing, but most Masses have plenty of space available. Sunday 11am is typically busier than the others. Once the church is at its safe capacity we can use additional space in the parish room which has a live screen and sound link; please be prepared to accept this option if it is offered.

Please see the Opening page for details of the precautions which must be followed whenever you come to church.

All Masses are available through Live Streaming.

Please see the Mass/Services page for full details of Masses. All times may change at short notice, but will usually be detailed in the Newsletter. You are also warmly invited to subscribe to our Keeping in Touch email list, which will be used for any urgent announcements.

The church is available for individual prayer, but this must be arranged in advance with Fr Simon or through the office.

For more information on our ongoing ministry during this time of great uncertainty, see our Church Reopening and Covid-19 Updates page.

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.

Gift Aid: If you are a UK tax payer, and have not already signed up for the Gift Aid scheme, please consider doing so HERE. This allows the church to claim back the tax you have paid on any donations, at no extra cost to you.

The latest edition of The Pilgrim (our parish magazine), and many of the previous editions, is available to read here.
