Everything you need to know about our in-person services

How to book

Bookings for in person Sunday services will close on the Friday afternoons at 1.30pm. Numbers will be limited due to social distancing. Those who do not have access to the internet can book by phoning the church office.

Please note we are asking people to register to ensure we have sufficient space. Additionally, you can opt in to the government ‘test and trace’ service so you will be contacted if anyone at the service develops COVID-19 symptoms in the coming day.

Please note: there is the possibility that you and your household may be visible in the livestream.

Book for upcoming services

Changes to services:

  • The 9.15am Service will continue as it has been, with social distancing, face coverings and no congregational singing.
  • The 11.15am Service will introduce congregational singing, with face coverings and reduced social distancing.

Please continue to book on as a group, selecting the ticket corresponding to your group size.  If the service appears fully booked, please check again later as we’ll be updating capacity as we work out seating.

To book your child/children into their groups, please follow the link in your confirmation email for the main service. They do not need to be included in the numbers for your household for the main service booking. 

If you were hoping to attend a service this Sunday but the services are already fully booked, please let us know by emailing the church office. This will help us plan for in person services going forward.
