Compton Beauchamp 9am – 5pm on Sunday
Longcot 10am – 3pm on Wednesday
Shrivenham 9am – 5pm on Sunday
Watchfield 10am – 4pm on Wednesday
Fernham church remains closed to allow Annabelle’s pre-school exclusive access during term time.
Face coverings are mandatory and you should either scan the NHS test and trace QR code or use the sign-in sheets on entering. Hand sanitiser is available and remember to maintain social distancing. Please do not come into church if you think you may have symptoms of Covid 19.
Meanwhile, the regular online services will continue: Sunday 11am communion services; Morning Prayer on Tuesdays and Thursdays; together with the monthly ASK and Worship & Praise services. Please download the Newsletter for full details.
If you need to talk or ask for specific prayers, please get in touch.
