Sunday 9th August:
Our church building is now open for a worship service at 9.45am each Sunday morning at St Paul’s Scotforth Road. Booking for a seat, as we have restrictions on numbers due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is essential. Please contact the parish office on a Wednesday morning between 10am and 12 noon – either by telephone (843135) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make your booking.
We remain committed to providing an online service each week and this will be using a Service of the Word liturgy for the Season of Trinity which is available here. Please visit our YouTube channel to join in with this service.
