Welcome to our Virtual Church
From 4th July our church buildings will be able to open for public worship. We are delighted to be able to welcome you back to St Mary’s Reepham from 12th July for Holy Communion at 10.30am. However we are aware that many of you have really appreciated the online services. They have been especially useful for those who are shielding, self isolating or are unable to leave their home. Therefore, we will be recording the services and uploading them to the website each Sunday afternoon.
Please join us over the coming weeks as we worship together and share our services with you. You can find a list of our weekly services for June and July here. As more church buildings prepare to open, we will look to extend Holy Communion services across the benefice and from August we will have a new rota to share with you.
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.
