At the time of writing, we’re planning for the possibility that we’ll be able to have a number of small, socially-distant Christmas services. These services will all take place following the government regulations current at the time they are due to take place. We imagine that this will involve the use of face coverings, test and trace, social distancing and musical performance, rather than congregational singing. Because of social distancing and the limited size of our Church buildings, some of our events are ticketed. Tickets are available via the eventbrite links below.
