What a strange Year!

We celebrated our 85th Jubilee in March with the visit of our Guest of Honour, Rev Margaret Fourie; immediately afterwards Covid-19 enforced lockdown with excellent virtual services organised by Maggie Verster until the end of September; and since then, from October, we have had chapel services following protocols. Remarkably, we have not missed a Sunday service and were able to reach a wide congregation with our broadcast services. Our ministry team has been outstanding in cautiously, but professionally, maintaining worship!  We have even had weddings and a baptism.


Even though we have resumed our face to face services for the last month, we have had to make the decision to return to virtual services due to the second wave of carona. This Sunday’s service (13th Dec) will therefore be broadcast with no chapel service). Although we would like to maintain chapel services especially for the positive morale they bring, we shall only do so if practical and safe. We shall let you know if there will be changes.  

Our Christmas Services are planned to be in the gardens:

  • 5:30 Thursday 24th December: Carols
  • 10am Friday 25th December: Family Service

Please bring chairs and follow protocols. Wear masks and sanitise

The St Patrick’s Council wishes all a Happy Christmas and a Great New Year.

Trevor Webster; Chapel Warden
