On Monday 16th March the government clarified the position on large gatherings and identified that churches should suspend meetings.
In response to the latest information and guidance here are a few things to let you know:
With immediate effect – we will no longer be meeting together on a Sunday morning for the foreseeable future. Our priority is the health and wellbeing our of church family and protecting the most vulnerable.
