In the short term whilst we wait for the Government’s road map to unfold, we will continue to hold worship one Sunday and provide time for private prayer the next Sunday, see this Church Services for details. At the moment it is also possible to hold funerals (with 50 in attendance), and baptisms and weddings (with 30 in attendance) within the current guidance. We expect this to change soon.
The Church is open for Private Prayer in the Holy Space on Wednesdays 12:00-2pm and on Sundays 9am-11am (when there is no public worship service). If you visit the church for worship or for private prayer and contemplation, it is necessary to maintain social distancing and wear a face covering following the Government guidance. We have a comprehensive risk assessment in place – if you visit please adhere to the guidance for your own safety and the safety of others . We ask you to please read Wincanton – What to expect March 2021 before your visit. This information is displayed just inside or outside the door.
We will also continue to provide some video reflections and text resources for use at home week by week as has become our custom via our website, emails and biweekly mailouts for those without internet. See the posts section for the latest worship resources.
