The Benefice churches and our worship
The Church remains alive and active; however, public worship is suspended and our churches have to stay closed for the time being.
Fr Oliver and Richard Havergal continue to meet every morning via Skype to say Common Worship Morning Prayer – please let us know if you would like to join us
“We lift up in prayer the people of our Benefice each morning; please let us know if you would like us to include in our prayers any particular person or cause.”

From our own Diocese, you can find at daily reflections
and much streamed material, including, on Sundays, a Service of Words and Music

The Church of England has launched a free national phone line as a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people’s homes while our church buildings are closed.  …
Dial in to listen to daily services of prayers and reflections.
The service is available 24 hours a day.

Daily Hope is just a phone call away
