Update on worship services, events, community support etc.
As we write this post, we have just entered another national lockdown, initially to last until early December 2020. We continue to live in a fast-moving time of crisis and change, with no end in sight. These are trying times for each one of us, and especially for those living alone, or with small children, those struggling financially, the very vulnerable, those with mental health issues and all who work in education, the NHS, the military and all other front-line services.
Whatever the short-term future may hold, we will continue to shape our church life around these four priorities:
- For the church family to remain connected and informed
- Ongoing support for the most vulnerable in our church family
- Ongoing support and help with care in the wider community
- The priority of prayer
It is our intention for prayer to remain central to who we are at this time, and to underpin our relationship with God, one another, and our community. In response to a call from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York for a month of prayer, we have devised opportunities for us to pray together, including quiet prayer events in our church buildings.
Please see below what we have decided to do in the short term, noting that things are still fluid and may have to change at short notice
Our November Church opening times are as follows:
|Wed 4th||10.00am||St Stephen’s||Said Holy Communion|
