Due to the latest Coronavirus restrictions, the Baptist Union have requested that Baptist Churches do not open their buildings for in-person worship on a Sunday so that churches stand in solidarity with their communities in eradicating the virus. The Government still allow churches to meet in law but the Baptist Union feel there is a moral imperative here.
The elders have taken the decision to close the church to in person worship and all services will be online only, on Zoom. This is because of the current risks of a very high infection rates and therefore our agreement with the Baptist Union recommendation. We will review the situation continually and keep you updated if we decide to reopen the church. Please do not come down to the church unless you have a specific task to do such as caretaker, banner arrangements, cleaning.
If you do not have a computer or a smartphone you can still access the audio of the services live by using your land line and entering the details below on your phone to join the service this Sunday:-

Many of us are familiar with the 24/7 Prayer Team, led by Pete Grieg. On Sunday, 12 April, they announced they would be joining with the UNITE714 initiative to pray twice a day for the healing of our land, and are encouraging Christians everywhere to do the same.
The initiative is based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 (hence the reference to 714) and the idea is that we set our alarm for 7:14 twice a day, morning and evening, and join in prayer with potentially millions of Christians worldwide.
“It’s time to take God at his word: to humble ourselves, to get our hearts right, to pray for the healing of our lands from the Covid-19 virus – and for an outpouring of God’s spirit in the midst of this crisis.” Pete Grieg
