Sunday Services  In line with other United Reformed Churches, we had to suspend all our Sunday Services. We are now looking at gradually restarting some services and the dates for these are given at the top of this page.

Chapel Prayers  Our regular Chapel Prayers, which normally take place at 10 each morning, will cease to take place.

Just Sharing  We are pleased that our Fair Trade shope has been able to start opening again from 10am to 3pm on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Tookeys and our Monday Snack Bar  We are alos please that Tookeys is now gradually reopening. It is currently open 10:30am to 1:30pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. To provide sufficient space, Tookeys is situated in our large downstairs Hall rather than it's usual place. 

Events, Activities and Meetings  All the events, activities and meetings which were scheduled to take place in our building had also been cancelled. Some support groups may be able to restart in October but larger meetings will need to wait longer before they can restart.   

Church Committees  The meetings planned for our various committes will continue to take place via conference calls /virtual meetings.
