On Sunday 9 August 2020 we had our first service of gathering together again, face-to-face!  Please see our virtual church newsletters to keep updated as we start to gradually re-open.

Services in our church (or the churchyard if good weather) during August will be as follows:

Sundays 9 & 23 August – 9.30am St James

Sundays 16 & 30 August – 9.30am All Saints Kempston MK43 8RH (our partner church)

Please read the following important notes on

what to expect when attending Church:

Face coverings must be worn by all those who attend (this is now a legal requirement) (if you are exempt please bring some evidence with you). We will have a few disposable face masks for use by anyone who has been unable to obtain one.

Please wash your hands before leaving home. You will be asked to sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the church.

A one-way system will operate in both the Church and the Churchyard. Please enter the churchyard via the entrance opposite the Church Barn. Entry to the church (if the service is inside) is by the main door. Please note the signs in place and follow the one way system once inside. You will be asked to exit via the Chancel door and the main Churchyard gates. Please adhere to social distancing requirements at all times when in the Church and Churchyard.

We are required to keep a register of attendees’ names and contact numbers which can be used for the Track and Trace system if required. These details will be stored securely and disposed of after 21 days.

If you are in a vulnerable category we advise you not to attend these physical services, but this is ultimately your decision to make.

Please do not attend if you feel unwell.

If you would like to be part of our Sunday morning Zoom services (or other services),  or receive our weekly virtual church newsletters, please contact Jacqui Piper on  01234 356993 or
