Return to church registration form

We are delighted to confirm that by God’s grace we will start physical worship in both churches on 19th July. It has been a trying and difficult time for us all and we still have a long road ahead, but we’re determined to take the first small steps to return to church life (regardless of how this may look in the future). 

We will have three worship services on Sundays: St George's at 7.15am - in person service; Zoom service online at 9.00 am; and St James at 9.30 – in person service. For further information, click here.

As part of having parishioners in church buildings, we are obliged by the government to present the following information to all who wish to attend church:

  • People 65 years and older with chronic medical conditions. (Conditions included in the definition of ‘chronic medical conditions’ will be refined as more evidence emerges. The most current list can be accessed on the Department of Health website).

Blessings,
