Notices for Sunday January 17th 2021
Second Sunday of Epiphany

Services in church and online
Given the rising case numbers, and the message to stay at home unless there is urgent need to go out, we have decided to stop having services in church that are open to visitors. We will continue having the 10am service for you to watch on the internet. Please remember, and perhaps be in contact with those who can’t access them.

You can watch the videos for all the churches when they “premier” , or later for your convenience by clicking on this link:

This Sunday: United Service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.
Our online service this Sunday, live at 10am, will be a quadruple act featuring Peter Bold, Ian Webb, Andy Gore and James Morley. We will use material specially written for this week, and liturgy from the Methodist Covenant Service. It will be a Communion Service, please bring your own bread and wine if you find it helpful.

Daily Prayers on line have now resumed, and will use Week of Prayer for Christian unity material, led by a variety!

Church open for private prayer
The church will be open for private prayer Wednesdays 9.30am to 4 pm and Sundays 11.30 to 4pm

Coffee after the Sunday services – 11am by Zoom:
We invite you to “virtual” after (or before??) service refreshments.

Readings and Collect

Eternal Lord,
our beginning and our end:
bring us with the whole creation
