Eternal God,
as Mary waited for the birth of your Son,
so we wait for his coming in glory;
bring us through the birth pangs of this present age
to see, with her, our great salvation
in Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen

Sunday Services 

We are delighted to be able to offer public worship in all of our churches.

Booking is essential for all Christmas Services. For regular Sunday services, there will be no need to book in advance, although places are still limited.

Please note that we are all now required to wear face coverings in church and we encourage everyone to continue to show their care for one another, and especially the most vulnerable, through social distancing. 

We will continue to provide hand sanitiser and administer communion in one kind only, but we are delighted that we will be able to sing. Please follow all of the safety advice you are given when you attend, and do not come if you are ill. For more information, please see the Coronavirus Update page.

Online worship from March 2020 – June 2021 is available on YouTube, and this website

Carols for St Petrocs

I have been asked by St Moritz hotel to sing carols for the visitors on Christmas Eve 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm
We are planning on raising money for St Petrocs.
Two years ago we had a fun time. It is very informal….. you can just turn up on the night, but it would be helpful to know who might like to join me.
Nothing professional, just a joyful noise!
