When we are able to re-open our churches services of public worship will resume. Celebrations of the Holy Eucharist will be held twice weekly in both our Churches:

St. Catwg’s each Sunday at 11.30am and each Thursday at 10.00am,

St. Margaret’s each Sunday at 9.30am and each Wednesday at 9.30am.

Services will be a little different as we observe social distancing in Church which may affect the number that can attend each service. We also need to collect contact details for those attending under the Government’s track and trace system and so we have to ask that if you would like to attend one of our services you must contact either Pat (01443 836176) for St. Catwg’s or Enid (01443 268988) for St. Margaret’s in advance of each service to reserve a place.

Thanks be to thee, my Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits thou hast given me, for all the pains and insults thou hast borne for me. O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother, may I know thee more clearly, love thee more dearly, and follow thee more nearly, day by day. Amen.
