days of need, and to rejoice with us in moments of
celebration...

Quiet Prayers in the Side Chapel
The side chapel is available on Sundays after
the 11am service for quiet prayer.
You are most welcome to make use of it.
No-one should disturb you there although
someone may quietly check whether you want
to chat and/or receive prayer or whether you
would rather be alone.
There is a children’s corner at the back of church
with books and toys; you are welcome to make use
of it.
The Church will be open from 2pm to 4pm every
Sunday afternoon.
Pop in for a cup of tea, a look around the church
or just for a time of quiet in your own space.
