Weekly Worship in the Benefice

Services are subject to all kinds of changes at the moment (i.e. sometimes we are open for Sunday Services, and other times closed). A weekly email is sent out with up to date details. You can resister to receive this email with the church office.

We are finding many people are – understandably – very stressed at this time, and many are thinking about spirituality, contemplation and life’s biggest challenges. If you are not familiar with, or used to church, then please know that you would be very welcome to join us for any of the services or discussions..

For now, (May 2021), this is a summary of how you can join us in worship, reflection and contemplation.


Sunday Services

St George’s holds two services of public worship each Sunday at 9.00am and 10.30am. Children’s groups meet during the 10.30am service during term time.

St John’s holds a service of public worship at 10am each Sunday.

Numbers are limited due to social distancing, so it is important that book in with the Office if you wish to attend either church.

Optional Community ‘Coffee and Chat’ on Zoom following the service (details from the church office).
