Dear all

As previously the Eucharist will be live from8.30am on Sunday morning, streaming from that time and then available at any time later for you to use in your devotions. The videos for all benefice services can be found on the benefice website, YouTube, and Facebook. As always, subtitles will be available.

This Sunday there will be no onsite services.

With the onset of lockdown once more and the new variant, it has been decided to cancel onsite services. The situation regarding church opening is also a little fluid at the moment so please check before venturing out if you plan to go to a church for private prayer.

Chieveley – by arrangement with the Rector
