Why is the heating not working?

As we know, it was working well until it closed down for the summer. When we tried to get it back up and running this autumn, however, we found a few problems. Unfortunately, although the Town Hall has tried to help, the heating engineers have been unable to get to the church because of the works (unfortunate timing, to say the least!).
The good news is that they are due to check the installation next week, so we hope for good news soon. Meanwhile, wrap up warm, and we've put the blankets back in church for you.

Wifi and internet

We'll keep you updated on the church internet and wifi status. The technicians are due to come on Monday to try and reconnect us via a different access point, but meanwhile, don't forget:
