During this Second National Lockdown in England (currently defined as four weeks running from November 5th to December 2nd) The Church of The Holy Innocents will be opened for Individual Private Prayer on Thursday mornings (10:00-11:00) and Sunday mornings (9:45-11:45). If you would like to pray quietly in the church at another time, please request access. If you require Sacramental Ministry or pastoral support during this time, please contact a member of the Ministry Team. We are here as requested.

The Act of Remembrance will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Remembrance Sunday, November 8th in the Memorial Chapel off Dalling Road. You are encouraged to attend, mindful of Social Distancing requirements.

Public Worship will resume as soon as it is legally possible (our current hope is this will be from Wednesday, December 2nd). Please familiarise yourself with the various updates and resources on this website and continue to participate in the life of your Church Family by reaching out to one another, asking for help, and offering help in the Bond of Peace.

"Come unto me all that travail and are heavy laden, and I will refresh you, So God loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, to the end that all that believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Love One Another

We are collating a list of helpful resources which offer both practical and moral support as we navigate these uncertain times. 


Please continue to observe the Stay at Home Order issued on March 23: only go out for essentials and to enjoy daily exercise and green space; continue to work from home if possible and avoid public transport unless absolutely necessary; do not gather in close proximity or mix households; avoid confined and poor ventilated spaces; practice good hygiene – do this until the Public Health Officials deem the risk of contagion sufficiently low so as to avoid further outbreaks. Stay Alert. 

Please contact the Vicar or a member of the Ministry Team for further information or assistance.

We are not without hope or resolve. We welcome your contributions and involvement in the life of our Church Family.

Love one another.
