Candles - lighting up the world

Services have resumed in church and we hope you will feel comfortable to return to worship with fellow members of your congregation. We are taking a cautious approach to how we do things so we aren’t ‘back to normal’ yet. However, what is ‘normal’ is the welcome you will receive and the pleasure it will be for everyone to be together again.

  • Sunday morning services will be held at 8.00am and 10.00am. There is no need to book to attend any more.
  • The wearing of face-coverings is mandatory once more (unless you are exempt). 
  • Please use the north porch door (the one facing Church Street) to enter the church and use the hand sanitiser provided when you come in.
  • We continue to operate a one-way system inside the church; please follow the arrows.
  • You may sit where you wish (we’re just using the saint-named pews at the moment) but please leave plenty of room between yourself and others.
  • The sacrament (Holy Communion) will continue to be offered in one kind, as has been our practice since re-opening. Face coverings must be worn when receiving the sacrament and hand sanitiser must be used. Administration will take place without speaking.
  • Yes, singing is back! We know how much everyone has missed singing hymns but remind you that you must continue to wear a face covering whilst singing.

Please be considerate of others and respect other people who may be taking a more cautious approach to attending church. Maintain social-distancing if you are able, wear a mask and heed the recent words of the Bishop of St Albans: For Christians, this is all part of the teaching to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’. How can I live and how can I worship in a way which protects those around me?

We also encourage everyone to take a lateral flow test at least once a week.

If you’re not able to get to church, you can still join in worship at our 10.00am service on Sundays on Zoom. Details are below.

The church is open for prayer during daylight hours. You are most welcome to pop in.

A prayer for the present time

Keep watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch or weep tonight, and give your angels and saints charge over those who sleep. Tend your sick ones O Lord Christ, rest your weary ones, soothe your suffering ones, pity your afflicted ones, protect your joyous ones, and all for your love’s sake. Amen.
