Services during COVID19 restrictions

Benefice Services March 2021

Welcome to our services for this month continuing the season of Lent, and finishing with our Easter Sunday celebrations. WE WILL HAVE HOLY COMMUNION SERVICES IN EACH OF OUR PARISHES ON EASTER SUNDAY at 10.30am. PLEASE BOOK IN WITH ME, please wear a mask and observe social distancing and clean hands!

Our Maundy Thursday remembrance of the Last Supper and the Good Friday meditation will both be on zoom. Do join us if you have never been to one of these before – they can be very moving services.  We are not allowed to have our dawn service on the Knapp but one or two hearty souls may wish to do their own celebration of Easter at dawn wherever they are.

We will continue with our current pattern of Sunday zoom services up to Easter:

10.30am Sunday Praise

4.30pm Evening Prayer following the Church of England Evening Prayer. There will be a time of testimony - saying what God has been doing in your life - what has struck you about the morning sermon or another piece of scripture - plus a time of open prayer - praying for whatever people would like to pray about.

Do join us for which ever service suits you. If you have not used zoom and would like help in getting on, do give me a call on 01743 861003. For most it is quite straightforward. You can also join us on your telephone - again ask me how. If you are only on the magazine email list and would like to receive the weekly invite to the zoom meetings, do let me know.

Our church buildings are closed but if anyone would like to go into one of the churches for private prayer, do ask and we will arrange that the church is unlocked for you.
