Arrangements during the Pandemic

Whilst we have not been able to meet in person since Christmas 2020, the Vale of Stour continues to offer live-streamed worship online.

The Virtual Church page in the 'Together Apart' section has all the information.

Wesley returns to public worship

The following information is based on current guidelines:

If you feel safe, well and able to attend, please note the following.


  • Face coverings must be worn.
  • Keep Social Distancing on arrival, including in the car park and entrance.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available for use as you arrive and leave.
  • Your name will be recorded.
  • A steward will show you to a seat, which may not be where you usually sit
  • Please remain seated.
  • Congregational singing is not permitted but there will be music to listen to.
  • At the end of the service, please wait for a steward to invite you to leave.
  • Your offering will be accepted as you leave.
  • Please do not socialise outside the church or in the car park.
This is a new way to worship; please be understanding.
These measures are a necessary part of our Risk Assessment to enable us to begin to worship together. 
The format of worship may have been changed but the one we worship is the same yesterday, today and forever.


You are invited to join us at any of our Sunday morning Worship Services at 10.30 am.
