Confession
When Vespers is served on Saturday evenings, Father Kosmas is normally available to hear confessions before (please contact him beforehand to arrange a time) and after the service. Although he may be able to hear confessions before the Liturgy (on Sundays, this is from around 9.30 am until 10.00 am) please bear in mind that he also needs to serve the Proskomide, and that several people may wish to come for confession at that time. If you wish to speak to Father Kosmas at greater length (e.g. to make a longer confession) please make an appointment to see him at another time: Mobile / Text / WhatsApp / 07960 517266; Email kiwittwer@aol.com.

Coronavirus / COVID-19
The Trustees have decided that there is no longer any general need for people attending church to take any particular precautions to prevent the spread of Coronavirus / COVID-19.
 
This means that there is no need for people to wear face masks or to sanitise their hands when entering and leaving the church; and that it is a matter of personal choice and devotion whether to kiss the Holy Icons, the Cross, and the Priest’s hand.
 
Face masks and sanitising gel will remain available for those who wish to use them; and we ask everyone to be aware that some people might wish to maintain social distance.
