Latest on Mass Arrangements
The church is currently CLOSED.
As of 4th January 2021, England is once again in a full lockdown. Although attendance at places of worship is allowed, Fr Simon has taken the decision, with the support of the bishop, that most Masses at St Laurence’s will be celebrated behind closed doors for now, with only the essential ministers present. 11am Mass on Sunday is a partial exception − please see the Opening page for details.
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.
