Church Staff & The Parish Office

We have had to take the decision to furlough the paid church staff, that is Polly, Teresa & Derek, for the foreseeable future which means under the new government scheme as a church we can claim 80% of their wages back, we will continue to pay them 100% whilst we can.

This, of course, means the office is closed until further notice but the answerphone and emails are being checked daily.

Covid-19 and it’s effects of church life: As well as worship being suspended, we have had to cancel all events and close the Church Hall. We pray for all those who are in isolation and will be hugely affected by this.
