New Service!

Missing your regular Sunday worship?  Well, there's no need to anymore!

Steve Abram has launched a 'Virtual Worship' on the Chaplaincy Facebook page.

The service will be available from 10:30am from Sunday 29th March

(Don't forget the clocks go forward 1 hour on Saturday)

You will need to open a Facebook account beforehand

this not difficult and there is no need to give any personal data.

Simply click the Facebook logo above or the link below


There has been a lot of 'information' circulating on email and 'social media' recently with advice on avoiding or even treating

Coronavirus/Covid19.  Most of this is unreliable and/or untrue even though it may purport to be from an authoritative source.

We strongly recommend everyone to follow ONLY the

guidelines and advice set out by the government.



All Chaplaincy services are CANCELLED for the next month.

 ALL Chaplaincy gatherings (e.g Homegroups and Prayer Meetings) must also be suspended

A 'word' from the Chaplaincy wardens on our services during the current crisis and the organisation of the Chaplaincy during the interregnum is available here

  • Facebook Social Icon

Due to the challenging times in which we find ourselves, the layout of the Homepage has been changed a little to allow more space for

important notices and information. 

The icons which previously appeared below for items such as Sermons and Services can all be accessed from the menu at the top of the page.

The Chaplaincy Facebook page where 'virtual services' and other

social communications can be found can be accessed by clicking
