"Coronavirus"

In line with advice from both the Government and the Church of England, we are suspending services at our three churches. All meetings (e.g. Lent Courses, Bible Studies, etc) are also suspended.

This does not mean we are closed for business. We are investigating ways to support you without risk of spreading infection. Some of these ways are highlighted below.

shopping  

"Doorstep Dropoff"

We have a limited number of volunteers available who would be able to collect shopping and drop it off. Please note that due to the limited number of volunteers we can only do one shop once a week (with the exception of urgent medicines). Also people should be prepared to accept a reasonable substitute if the item or brand they want is not available. If you require this service, please can you in the first instance contact Sarah at [email protected].

Many thanks for Keith Swann for coordinating this effort.

"WhatsApp"

If you are technologically minded then you can stay in touch via our WhatsApp group. With my GDPR hat on, I must advise people that being on the WhatsApp group will expose your mobile number to everyone else on the group. To join the group, contact Sarah at [email protected] and leave your mobile number. As I discovered this evening, this only works if you have the WhatsApp app installed on your phone. Don't worry. The app is free to download.
