While vaccines for COVID-19 are beginning to be delivered to the public, it will be some time before the general public will be vaccination eligible, so we continue to live with the virus’ threat and effect. While normal worship times are listed below, circumstances may warrant a change in the manner in which worship is offered.

On Monday, January 4th, the parish council determined that face to face worship will resume Jan. 10th.  Click here for details.
