Following the Archbishops' directive we have made the difficult decision to cancel upcoming services. 

In this fast-moving situation in which we find ourselves, advice is likely to change very quickly.

We will be keeping our website updated with new guidance as we receive it.

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


Where we go from here as a faithful and prayerful community seeking to support others, while remaining aware of the constraints on everyday life and our usual levels of social contact, depends on all our kindness and good choices.

We encourage you to consider using other ways of creating a supportive community in our Parish. We are already liaising with other community groups such as Grove Neighbourhood Centre, Brackenbury Residents Association, and our local Councillors at LBH&F.

It could be as simple as offering your telephone number to another so they have someone to reach out to.

This is a time to assist one another and be a living Church (Body of Christ) in the heart of our community. We are here to help and support one another each and every day.

We will continue to update you as the situation and public policy change.

Our strength comes from the Lord who has made heaven and earth.

We are here for you.
