Sunday Service arrangements

We’re open again to all, and you are very welcome. There are modifications to the service and layout of chairs, in accordance with government guidelines, and you will need to wear a face covering. We have readings from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, prayer, and social distancing. We can’t sing hymns together for the time being but a professional organist and soloist provide great music.

  • Mondays            1pm to 3pm
  • Tuesdays            temporarily closed
