Our current services can be viewed on our services page, and we have removed all social distancing restrictions from our church buildings. We are asking people to consider wearing masks, especially when moving around or singing, and we are providing hand-sanitiser at the entrances too. We continue to offer communion in one kind only at the present time.

We will continue to meet each Sunday on YouTube at 11am, too.

We are currently in conversation about when and how we will reopen our church buildings. It is important to be able to gather together physically, but due to the restrictions we face, and the responsibility we share to limit the spread of the virus, these decisions cannot be taken lightly. Further updates will appear on this website and our Facebook page in due course.

Following the recent announcement that our area is now in Tier 4, and having seen the number of cases of the Covid-19 virus significantly rise in recent days, we have taken the decision to suspend all in person worship / prayer meetings in our buildings until further notice. We will, of course, continue to meet online via Youtube.

UPDATE: 22nd June 2020
The Government has recently made the decision to allow church buildings to open for the purposes of private prayer and small funerals. At present our two church buildings remain closed, but we have issued an update on our plans. You can read the statement here, or watch a video of it being read on our YouTube channel, here.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have been unable to tend to the churchyard at Bradfield as we would normally do over the last few months. However, we are hoping that the overgrown areas will soon be able to be tackled, and are in discussions about how best to facilitate this. We will let you know what the plans are as soon as we've sorted them out.
