The Churchwardens and PCC have made the decision to re-open St Paul’s Church for public worship on Good Friday, 2nd April and Sunday morning eucharist services will resume from Easter Sunday, 4th April. For the time being the ‘All Aboard’ services (usually on the second Sunday of the month) will be replaced by the normal eucharist service.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Temporary Suspension of Services Owing to the recent Government instruction to ‘Stay at Home’ there will be no public worship services at St Paul's until further notice. The churchwardens and PCC will be reviewing this decision at the beginning of March.
********* Please note that all services will now be suspended from 5th November to 2nd December due to the re-imposition of a national lockdown ************

In line with Government guidance, St Paul's Church re-opened for Sunday Worship on 5th July 2020. The service is a little bit different from before Coronavirus struck in that there is no singing allowed and that no wine is taken at Communion. No hugs or handshakes are allowed during the Peace which instead consists of verbal responses said to each other and waves across the pews. From 8th August, face coverings are now compulsory inside church. The Wednesday morning service has now also restarted in church.

John-Paul is going to say Morning Prayer in Church at 9am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. If you would like to join him he would be glad of the company and it could be a good Advent discipline.
