This Week

Third Sunday of Easter - 26th April 2020

Dear all

Amid all that is going on, I hope you are still managing to have a...


This week, as well as the sheet we once again have a sermon from Douglas - this week for the Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist whose day is the 25th April. Douglas has also provided a guide for a Rule of Prayer for use during the pandemic. To round it all off we also have another resource from the Church of England on mental health - five simple tips that may be helpful - that might just make an important difference! You can download them on a leaflet below.

On the Diocesan website you can find some material for use via this link, and the Church of England has a service for Easter Day from the Archbishop of Canterbury which you can join via this link

Do give it a look!

As before, worship from this benefice is available here and a service for this Sunday will be available from 8.30am on the day.

There is still the opportunity to join in a series of daily bible reflections for Easter. EasterPilgrim: The Lord's Prayeris 40-day journey through the prayer Jesus taught his followers. There are a few ways of signing up to receive the reflections can all be found here.

Please do spread the word about our revamped benefice website, and encourage others to keep in touch with what is going on by signing up to these updates – just cut and paste the link to them in an email:

Very importantly, if there are any people who you know would like a hard copy of this then please print it off for them or let me know, and I’ll take care of it (whilst keeping physically distant!)

Finally - I'm looking for some help.

Could you help with our online worship?

I'm not asking anyone to become a video editor but many of you do help with worship on a regular basis. At the moment our services are being streamed and - thus far - they have been done by the denixzens of the Vicarage. If any of you can help and would be willing to record bits of a service - preferably video but audio would be fine - and then email them to me then I will put together services that are a more collaborative act than at present. If you are interested please email me at and I will send you the material that needs recording. I would need to have the clips by Friday morning in order to do the editing and subtitles, so there's plenty of time. If you have the tech, please do help!

For now, as always, all the best, God bless, and keep safe
