The Methodist Church welcomes all who wish to join us for worship, but due to the current situation we have had to reduce the seating in the church in order to comply with guidelines and to ensure that people can worship in a safe manner. If in the event you arrive, and all the seats are occupied the steward will inform you that the church is full, and you will be asked not to enter.
