Welcome to Our Church

We will be open again for regular worship from Easter Sunday 4th April at 10:30am, following a service outside the church on Good Friday (2nd Apr) at 10:30. No booking is required, social distancing will be followed as usual, we want to look after you! Our Olive Grove Coffee Shop will be open as soon as restrictions lift.

Palm crosses will b placed outside the church on Lune Street for you to take in the weeks leading up to Easter, but why not make your own at home? Check out this video from St Albans Cathedral on YouTube
