Prayer and Worship

We will be putting information and links here to help us pray and worship during the COVID-19 pandemic when our normal worship gatherings are suspended.

You can still find the sermons from our most recent services here

7th Sunday of Easter

We are now in the ten day period from Ascension Day to Pentecost. This is a time when the church prays particularly for the coming of the Kingdom of God and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We are joining in the global wave of prayer movement Thy Kingdom Come (clicking on this will take you to the website where you can find more resources to support your prayer).

This week we reach the last section of 1 Peter, reminding ourselves that the suffering Christians experience as we seek to walk the way of the cross is part of the spiritual battle we are engaged in.

Tim Pullen (our Rector) is leading and Karen Hanford (our curate)  preaching.

Remembering a loved one

Please remember the families and friends of those who have died recently

  • Paul Hobson
  • David Wilson
  • Heather Karkut
  • Carol Jenkins
  • Geoffrey Smith

Sadly, during this very difficult time, some of us will be unable to attend funeral services for those we have known and loved. We hope to be able to conduct memorial or thanksgiving services in the future for those whose funerals have to be restricted to immediate family only.

In the meantime you may find it helpful to light a candle and pray here
