Coronavirus emergency:

With the easing of the pandemic, St Clement's Church will continue to be open for two services each Sunday at 9:30am and 11:30am. Following Church of England guidance, we still ask that you contact the church office to book your seat, and we also request that face masks are worn (unless exempt). For more information, and to reserve your seat, please call the church office on 01202 733390.

Some good news: singing in church is now permitted - but face masks should be worn throughout the service.

* Please telephone the church office to reserve your place *

All our other group meetings remain suspended until further notice. For more information please phone our church office: 01202 733390

 Church of England resources

The Church of England has provided a number of resources to help people during this time of isolation. For more information about services on line, follow this link:


 We are still open on weekday mornings to both receive and give out Foodbank parcels. Some people have asked how they can donate financially as they are unable to get out.  Ways that you can give financially to the Foodbank are:

 By cash / cheque to Poole Foodbank, Longfleet United Reformed Church, Longfleet Road, Poole. BH15 2HP. (Cheques should be made payable to Faithworks Wessex, but marked for Poole Foodbank)

 Direct payment to the Faithworks bank account (00015300    40 - 52 - 40) - but again, please specify that your donation is for Poole Foodbank.

 Through Local Giving: and specify Poole Foodbank in the message box.

 Monthly giving: Text POOLE and the amount you wish to donate to 70085. Eg. POOLE10 will create a £10 monthly gift. (You will be charged the amount donated, plus a standard network rate message. You will then be charged the donation amount to your monthly mobile bill.)

  A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have continued to support the church financially during this crisis. We are so grateful to each and every one of you.  We have had a request from our Treasurer's Assistant, Emma, who asks that anyone making a one-off donation with gift aid directly into our bank account, to also send a quick message to the church office to let us know that you are planning to or have done so.  This enables her to claim the gift aid as it doesn't automatically show up on the system and can get missed. Thank you so much.
