and the Church of the Holy Spirit, Milton Combe

Welcome to our website!

In line with guidance from the Diocese, both our churches will be open for services from Sunday 2nd August. Service times will be as before: 09:15 in Milton Combe and 10:30 in Buckland Monachorum (no evening services in summer).                                                       With the necessary restrictions in place church services will “look and feel” a bit different, but we are very grateful to be able to meet again. We would lovingly encourage all who are shielding or in the vulnerable category to stay away from the services in the church buildings and instead access the online services that will continue for the foreseeable future.                                                                                            We continue to maintain a safe physical distance within the church building and ask that folk give their name and a contact number on arrival as part of the track and trace system. Hand sanitiser will be available at the door and according to the latest guidance “it is strongly advised that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship”. Please also bring your own Bible. “Pew packs” will be available for children to collect on entering the church building if required, but the crèche area will remain closed.

Online for you…

Whilst we start to meet carefully again in church, we are publishing here recordings of services and messages for our congregations.
Please see our latest ‘virtual service’ on our Services page below, and their accompanying Resources for the Family Focus.

A prayer for those in isolation

God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. In their loneliness, be their consolation; in their anxiety, be their hope; in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross, but reigns with you in glory, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For carers, hospital staff and researchers

Gracious God, give skill, sympathy and resilience to all who are caring for the sick, and your wisdom to those searching for a cure. Strengthen them with your Spirit, that through their work many will be restored to health, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
