Although there are still restrictions on numbers attending events at the church because of the need for social distancing, we are hopeful that all those wishing to attend in person will be able to do so.
However, if numbers are large, we’re unable to guarantee a place for everyone, and we’d advise arriving in good time so you can make sure of your seat.
