Services

Dear fellow Parishioner,

We will continue with our regular pattern of four services each Sunday during October. Details will appear on the website chelseaoldchurch.org.uk ahead of the relevant day. The website has enjoyed a slight revamp through the good offices of our Webmaster Tim Gates so we hope you like its more cheerful aspect.

As the weather grows colder please make sure you come adequately prepared for church. The doors will remain open on all sides to provide the protective balm of a cool breeze. We will continue to spread ourselves over the church to observe as much social distancing as possible. Mask wearing is a matter of individual preference.

Progress on the search for our new vicar is proceeding well. We received an outstanding list of applications in response to our advertisement for the post and the process of shortlisting and interviewing is underway. We are hopeful of being able to announce the new appointee in the course of November, with a view to their being able to take up office in February next year.
