St Paul's Church and Oaks Community Centre (June 2020)

Due to the outbreak and subsequent lockdown regulations our buildings are currently closed for worship until further notice.

BUT, FROM THURSDAY 25TH OF JUNE 2020 WE WILL BE OPEN FOR PRIVATE PRAYER 10-12 AM (SEE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW)

A large number of our congregation, employed staff and volunteers are now classed by the government as “vulnerable” (mostly due to age!) and because of this we have been restricted in what we are  normally able to do!

We are working tirelessly in the background to prepare for a return to normal, whatever this entails, and need to adapt to new methods of communication, which for many is a steep learning curve!

In the meantime, one thing we do remain confident in is the importance of PRAYING for people and the situations they find themselves in. If you would like to add names to the daily prayer list, please let us know.
