Opening of the Church
January 2021 Lockdown

          Prayer the church's banquet, angel's age,

          God's breath in man returning to his birth,

          The soul in paraphrase, heart in pilgrimage,

          The Christian plummet sounding heav'n and earth

                                                          George Herbert

The Church is open each weekday from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm, with Mass at 9 am.

There are also Masses at 5.30 pm on Saturdays and 11am on Sunday.

 

The Church is not open to the public in the afternoons but, if you wish to use it for prayer, please call at the Presbytery.

Visitors to the church must enter through the doors on the Broadway side and exit by the door into the car-park or the door in the Day Chapel.

 

Those who wish to use the car-park can gain access to the Broadway door by the little 'slip-gate' near the Calvary.

Once in the Church, please follow the directional arrows and only enter/exit through the marked doors. Observe social distancing at all times.

Please only sit in the seats marked; all others are cordoned off. Please do not move the seating around.

Bear in mind that you should bring your own mask and gloves; hand-sanitiser will be provided.

Furthermore:

  • The toilets, hall, Bethany Room, kitchen and sacristies will not be open. 
     

  • Members of the same family or household may sit together where space allows but, unless from the same household, you may not sit with another person.
     

  • Please do not touch the statues; we do not want to section them off so we must request that people respect this rule.
     

  • A single basket will be provided for any donations or prayer requests. Please put them in an envelope and indicate clearly what they are intended for.
     

  • If you wish to bring any contributions for the food-bank, these can be left at the presbytery.
     

  • If you wish to engage in conversation with fellow parishioners, please do so only outside the building and make sure to observe social distance.
