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.


Women's Fellowship are meeting again on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month in the church at 1:30pm.

Mothers' Union are meeting on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 2pm, also in the church.

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

Online services will continue to be recorded and these will be available on YouTube and Facebook (see below).



The church office continues to be staffed on weekday mornings from 9am to 1pm.    Please do phone us or email us if you need anything, require information or have a prayer request.  The office number is 01202 733390 and email:



Christmas Shoeboxes for Romania

Once again we were able to send shoeboxes packed with gifts for deprived children in Romania.

We produced 210 boxes that were safely delivered to the collecting centre in Cranleigh, Surrey. There they were packed onto pallets for onward transport to the Bethlehem Centre in Hunedoara, Romania, in time for Christmas.



Although our church is open again for Sunday worship, the 11:30am service is now 'live streamed' on Youtube. If you are not able to watch the live service a recording of the service is available to watch on Youtube about an hour later. To find these services please follow this link:
