Welcome to our Virtual Church
Whilst our church buildings are closed to help stem the spread of Covid-19, we will be adding weekly recorded services to our Virtual Church. These will appear before 10am each Sunday and we also be adding the week’s Bible readings and order of service so for those of you who wish to read along. Although there may not be many notices of events happening in the benefice at the moment, we hope to fill the gap with good news and interesting articles in the Isolation Times which can be found at the bottom of the page.
Please join us over the coming weeks as we worship together and share our services with you. You can find a list of our services for May and June here.
Alongside our pre-recorded services we will be having ‘real time’ services on Zoom including Café Church, Evening Prayer and Mothers Prayers as well as our Zoom Coffee Socials. All the details of our “Virtual Chapel” can be found here including details of how to access Zoom via your computer or landline. It really is a lovely way to see and speak to each other and share our good news. Everyone is welcome, whether you come to church regularly or have never been before, whether you live in the benefice or not, we would love to see you.

Prayers at Home
Whilst we are unable to use our church buildings for worship, we have produced booklets to help you pray at home with ideas for prayers and blessings that you can use during these uncertain times. Feel free to use the words as printed or use them as a starting point for your own conversation with God.

We have also put together a booklet for young people and their families. It is a confusing and worrying time for many of us, but particularly for our children and young people who may have more questions and hear things they might not fully understand. Our booklet contains prayers, activities and exercises to help bring a moment of calm.

During the period from Ascension to Pentecost, Thy Kingdom Come looks to unite Christians in a global wave of prayer. We pray for 5 people we know or care about and we are reminded that God is everywhere and listening to us. Below is a Prayer Journal that you can print and complete to help you focus on your “Daily 5” as well as reflect on the day’s readings and prayers.
