Welcome to our website! Although church services are still in suspension, our church buildings are now open on Wednesdays and Saturdays for private prayer and quiet reflection. If you would like to visit the buildings, feel very welcome to do so, but please follow the guidance, use the hand sanitiser and stay safe. The government has recently included churches in the latest round of “re– openings”. Although the church is allowed to open for services from Saturday 4th July, a number of stipulations have to be met. The church leadership team have to agree that these have been met before we can host services and we want to make sure the correct choices are made for the wider church family. With that in mind, please be aware that we will update folk via e-mail, the website and the weekly notice sheet as things progress. In the meantime, please continue to make use of our online Service library and ever-growing Resources page.
The new normal!
Whilst we are unable to hold our usual services, we are starting to publish here, recordings of services and messages for our congregations.
Please see our latest ‘virtual service’ on our Services page below, with accompanying Resources…and join us for Zoom coffee and cake at 11!
A message from Revd Andy Bowden about the Churches re-opening for services
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.
