Beloved church open to parishioners

We are pleased to announce that we can now open our beloved church to parishioners, starting from tomorrow our church will be open for Divine Liturgy from 9.30am. We will have a visiting priest from London leading the service on Sunday 12th July. 

In order for us to open the church, some changes have been completed inside of the church, to abide by the guidance from the UK Government and from our Archdiocese.
 
Due to this please can we all make sure to adhere to the Government guidelines as the local council has the right to come into church to inspect and confirm that we are following procedures and guidelines.

To help us to ensure we can keep the church open, we ask you to please kindly follow the guidelines attached and follow the social distancing rules. 

We really appreciate the patience and understanding you have shown throughout these challenging and emotional times and thank you in advance for all your cooperation. 

We look forward to welcoming you all back tomorrow

(Please remember we have a maximum capacity we are allowed in the church and once this capacity has been reached, you will not be able to enter until someone has left).

Urgent Appeal – Church Floor

As you may know, it has been discovered that the church floor is suffering from wood rot and needs renovation. Please see photos below.

Unfortunately, we do not have the funds required to perform this work and are therefore appealing to our congregation, and anybody else that may be in a position to help us.

We had an estimate for £6000 but we are hoping to reduce it by having the work done by a church member who is doing it in stages as funds become available. Materials for one section have cost £1000 pounds but 2 large sections are still to be started and so we do not know what the costs of those will be.

Donations can be given to committee members or by credit/debit cards via our Donations Page or via our Just Giving Page

We are also open to any suggestions for alternative funding options.
