Good news! We will go ahead with in-person services for this Sunday (21st), the following (28th) and there will be a Midweek Service at 2pm on the 31st as well as a Good Friday service on the 2nd at 10am at Priory Street. At this stage there is still no congregational singing
Numbers will be limited and pre-booking is required please. – contact Tim or the Church Office to do this
There is some sign from the Baptist Union that we may be allowed to meet and even sing outdoors to celebrate Easter Sunday. We have decided start planning this and pray it will indeed be allowed.
