Coronavirus Update

Regretfully in the light of the current situation we have suspended all public worship, baptisms, weddings, events and group gatherings in the parish for the foreseeable future, and both churches are currently closed.

We would be delighted to welcome you or your children to be baptised and want to help make your day a special one. Normally we meet for refreshments on a Sunday afternoon when we explore the meaning of baptism, and also look at the service in detail to answer any questions you may have. 

Because we have a wide range of services, baptisms are held on specific Sundays in the month as follows –  in St James’ on the 1st Sunday in the month during the 10am Family Service, and in St Thomas à Becket on the 4th Sunday in the month after Matins at 12.30pm. Children who are baptised will be kept in touch with activities for families throughout the year, and youngsters will be invited to join Young Church when they are three years old.
