Churches open for Private Prayer

Please note that anyone attending either St Francis de Sales or St Mary Magdalene Church for Private Prayer now needs to wear a face mask.

To all of you who answered the 'Call for help' and volunteered your time as either a Steward or a Cleaner - thank you. As a result, we can now publish the dates and times that we can initially re-open our Churches for Private Prayer, as listed further below. Please read Guidance when visiting our Churches


If you would like to volunteer your time as either a Steward or Cleaner, please complete this form. Restrictions have now been relaxed slightly and we are able to accept offers of help from those over 70 years old who are happy that they would not be putting their own lives, or those of their family, at increased risk, by undertaking this form of Sacred Service.
