Worship with Us

Under the current national lockdown, places of worship remain open for communal worship and the celebration of Mass can continue. We publish a weekly programme of Services, and booking is not necessary. And live stream services for those who prefer to watch online and make a Spiritual Communion (see below).

When attending Christ the King Church, please act with caution and diligence. You must observe the protocols in place and please do not mingle with anyone outside of your household or support bubble. Thank you for your cooperation.

May you be blessed with the grace of new life during this Holy Season and beyond.

Watching Mass Online

Here is the YouTube link for all live streamings. The stream goes live 10 minutes beforehand. Here is the Order of Mass. Please say the Act of Spiritual Communion after the priest has received Holy Communion – he will prompt you.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You Are truly present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, And I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot, at this moment receive you Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as being already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Mass Offerings

All intentions will be said by Fr David either in public or private celebration of Mass during the current lockdown. If you would like to offer a Mass please email
