If you would like to return to in-person services at our parish, please complete the returning to church registration form below. This is only required once so if you have already completed the returning to church registration form you do not need to do this again.
Please be aware that completing this form does not automatically mean you will be able to attend a particular service because of the strict rules including for social distancing that we are required to follow, and numbers are necessarily still limited. However, if for any reason you are not given a place one week we will do our best to ensure you are allocated a place the following week.
Once you are registered, we will assume you would like to attend each week and allocate places accordingly. If for any reason you are unable to attend any service, it is essential that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can try to allocate the place to others. Thank you for your help with this.
Once places have been allocated, an email will be sent out to confirm your place. This is usually done each Wednesday.
Thank you for your patience and prayers as we work hard to ensure we comply with all the rules. If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact the office.
