Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23rd March 2020, we regret that it is no longer possible to keep the church open. Therefore, with heavy heart, we are closing our doors with immediate effect. The only services permitted under the new government restrictions are funerals.
We are considering ways in which we can continue
to operate as a worshipping community so please continue to visit this site
which will be updated regularly.
If you are worried, have questions, or need any support from us with shopping or other daily requirements, please let us know and we will make every effort to assist.
All public services are suspended until further notice.
A quotation from St Augustine which I very much like is “the one who sings prays twice”. This is encouraging not only for the members of a choir, who happily and faithfully come to rehearse on a cold winter evening but for individuals, including myself, especially on a difficult day when I may well be finding it hard to pray. For many, a song or hymn or particular piece of music may well be prayerful. I am regularly very moved by the love, care and attention that people put into their choice of music for baptisms, marriages and funerals.
time of writing to you, we are approaching the 17th March, the
celebration of St Patrick. At this time
I am drawn to the hymn which is sometimes called St Patrick’s Breastplate.
emphasis is on God the Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Creator,
Redeemer, Sustainer. It tells of the birth,
life, death and resurrection of Jesus, of the creative power of God and the
strength of the Holy Spirit.
The final refrain is:
be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside
me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me, Christ beneath me,
Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all
that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger”
Especially in difficult times this is a very important message to hear.
May you know the presence of God and the joy of Easter.

Come join us!
You are welcome to join us at St Stephen and St Agnes, regardless of race or gender or sexuality. We are part of the Church of England and our worship style is modern catholic: this means the service uses contemporary English, but still has ritual and incense (‘smells and bells’). Services finish with Fairtrade tea and coffee, or a glass of sherry if that is what you prefer. There is a Fairtrade stall selling a variety of goods from Traidcraft (chocolate, biscuits, tea, coffee, rice, Christmas cards later in the year, etc.)
There are areas in the church that make it easy for parents with prams or people in wheelchairs to join the worship. Our congregation age ranges from babies to 98-year-olds. On the first Sunday of the month, we have a family service with home-baked cakes. Study and discussion groups are available throughout the year with special courses run during Advent and Lent.
We are committed to safeguarding children, young people, and vulnerable adults. The parochial church council has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website. Our Parish Safeguarding Representative is Laura Betteridge and she may be contacted at church or by email.
