We are now able to welcome you back into our church for the celebration of Mass. At weekends you will need to book a place in order to attend and this can be done via eventbrite. On weekdays just turn up and we will take your details.
We are also open for private prayer every Monday from 3pm to 4pm and Tuesday from 9am to 10am. You are welcome to come for as long or as little as you would like. There is no need to book, there will be stewards on-hand every time the church is open to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. They will also take down your contact details for the purpose of ‘track and trace’, take your temperature, provide you with a new face covering (if you have forgotten to bring one), show you where the hand sanitising station is and where to sit.
We look forward to welcoming you to our church.
