Epiphany

THE COLLECT

Creator of the heavens,who led the Magi by a star to worship the Christ-child: guide and sustain us, that we may find our journey’s end in Jesus Christ our Lord.


When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

Covid-19: Tier 4

Tier 4 – Update on Sunday worship services in January 2021.

We have now been put into Tier 4 which means we are being asked to stay at Home.

Therefore, we have decided to continue with our Zoom Services online for the next few weeks at least, as this seems to be the best way to worship and keep people safe.

We are very grateful to Revd Martin Hathaway for ensuring there is a Zoom service every week as this is really important. These are Communion services and open to everyone to join in. (You do not have to take communion if you prefer not to but the option is there).

Maxine Johnson will send people the link to join these services, if you email her on maxineJohnson.1@btinternet.com

We thank you for your continued understanding in these difficult times and pray that with patience, we will be able to meet in person sometime in the future. Thank you.
Stay at home, protect yourselves and those you love. 🙏

Carol Service on Zoom

This Thursday evening, 17th December at 7.30pm A ZOOM CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE, with familiar readings and carols – A VERY SPECIAL TIME TOGETHER!

Christmas this year will be different but for that very reason the Christmas message is even more important than usual!

That first Christmas a baby was born to poor parents a long way from home in deeply troubled times.

Jesus came to shine a light in the darkness, to bring love and peace, comfort and joy where it was most needed – and he does the same today!

So let’s all do our best to truly celebrate this year.

Coronavirus restrictions limit what we can do, so we will have some of our services online using Zoom :

If you haven’t used Zoom before, it is easy to access on a computer, tablet or smartphone – all you need is a special link which we send you beforehand by email.

Please contact Maxine Johnson – maxinejohnson.1@btinternet.com – to request the link.
