Policy for Church Closure:
Parish Council had a good discussion about our storm policy in
light of the freezing rain last Sunday and the confusion about
the cancellation of the 10am service. Please note that
whenever there is weather forecast for Sunday morning that
might require cancelling the Sunday service/s, the Wardens and
Rector will make a decision by 7am on the given Sunday. We
will then inform parishioners by email (or phone if required
for the 8am service), and leave messages on the rectory and
church office phones and with local radio stations. If the
weather and/or driving is questionable please check your email
or call the church or rectory before
heading out for church services. We want everyone to be safe
