We’re getting there …

Dear Friends,

During this last week I presided at the Eucharist at 10am on Wednesday at St Stephen’s Church for the first time since we went into lock-down.  We are now in a position to restart 10.45 am Solemn Masses next Sunday, 12th July.  St. Peter’s will continue to celebrate public Sunday worship as well, following the successful recommencement last week. If there is renewed lock-down, a second spike of the virus, or local difficulties (many of the retired priests who help us are aged over 70 and/or shielding), then we shall pause these Sunday services – if necessary, at short notice -  as we had to do in March.  We will, of course,  be observing the precautions advised by the government. These include the use of hand-sanitizing and social distancing. Attendees will also be requested to provide their contact details, so that should there be another outbreak, NHS Track and Trace personnel will know who may have been affected.

Be patient with us in all this, please.  We are all ‘sailing in uncharted waters’ as we make our way through this pandemic.  But I shall provide you with the sacraments as often as I can, and I see it as a high priority to keep our church buildings open for prayer as much as possible.

Mission Statement

Our hope is to respond to God’s love in three distinctive ways:
