Also, the Church of England has a free national phone line to provide a simple way that praise and worship can enter people’s homes. Daily Hope, which is available, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.
The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind.
Evening Prayer will continue to be put on to our YOUTUBE channel on Wednesday evenings. If anyone wants to join in then please contact me & I will print a copy off & deliver it, or send you one electronically.
Our Parish Prayer meeting will once again be held on this coming Tuesday at 2 pm, we will send out the link. As before you can pray a pre-prepared prayer, read one you have found, or just enjoy listening, knowing that God is with us as we gather. Please feel free to send in prayer requests to me.
We shall be holding another ‘Coffee & Quiz’ gathering on Thursday afternoon at 1.30 pm. It is good to just see other people & to partake in a bit of fun & laughter, & some more straightforward questions.
Church will continue to be open from 10-12 Sunday morning & 2-4 Wednesday afternoon, with appropriate Social distancing in place.
Church reopening for Public Worship
It is our intention to begin worship in Church again on September 6th, with Morning Prayer on Sundays. Church will be open from 10 am to 12 noon for prayer, but from 10.30 am until 11 am there will be a service of said Morning Prayer. There will still be an online service via YouTube as we had held for the past few months for those who do not feel safe at coming to a communal event. Service sheets will be provided which we would like you to take home & bring them with you when you next attend, so reducing the possibility of contracting the virus.
There will also be a service of Evening Prayer on Wednesdays, once again set in the context of Church being open for private prayer. This service will commence at 3,30pm until 4 pm, with the Church being open for private prayer from 2 – 3.30 pm. We hope to put this service onto the YouTube Channel so that those who are unable to attend can enjoy it. Once again, Service sheets will be provided which we would like you to take home & bring them with you when you next attend, so reducing the possibility of contracting the virus.
For more information do not hesitate to contact me.
Once again, if you or anyone you know is in need please get in contact with me.
