(Information remains correct as of 1st December)
We will be updating you weekly on our opening dates and times, as these may change.
This is an unusual and concerning time for us all and we hope you are not feeling too anxious over recent developments with the Coronavirus. We would love to encourage all of us to press into God and remember that ‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble…’ (Psalm 46:1) Let’s all be praying for our St Saviour’s Big Family regularly and for our country and all those affected by the global pandemic in the days ahead.
We are keen to keep you fully informed as we journey together and so this is a detailed list of what is happening, our approach to the crisis we find ourselves in and how you can get involved or receive support.
Following the ongoing advice from the government and the Church of England, we are taking the following actions:

What are we seeking to do as a big church family in this situation?
- Walk closely with God and find his encouragement and strength and be faithful followers of Jesus and help those around us where we can.
- ‘Love God, Love People & Make A Difference’ by building family, shining brightly and living courageously.
- Support one another
- Care for Big Family members, especially those at risk. (The elderly, those with underlying conditions and those with additional needs)
- Prioritise the most vulnerable first
- Be courageous, generous, careful and responsible in all of our efforts and ensure that we follow all necessary measures to keep people safe (i.e. safeguarding, health and safety requirements)
- Do all we can to avoid spreading the virus.
