Welcome to St Aldhelm’s

During the current restrictions we worship together on Sunday at 10am with a short Eucharist service – you would be very welcome to join us either in person or online, via a livestreamed service on our facebook page or later on our YouTube channel.

We take great care to ensure that our services are as safe as possible, following government and national church guidance. Our congregation wears face coverings, uses hand gel as they come into church and sits at a good social distance. We distribute the communion carefully and for now there is no congregational singing. We look forward to a time when we can sing and socialise, hug and laugh together but for now our focus is on staying safe.

Today we welcome a guest preacher at St Aldhelm’s, the Rev’d Dr Ayla Lepine, who as well as being a priest in the Church of England is also an art historian, a theologian and a curator at the National Gallery. Our Gospel reading tells of the beheading of John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus. What will Mother Ayla make of this story in her preaching today?

Join us from 10am on our facebook page or later on our YouTube channel to find out.
