The latest message from Lawrence, our Website Editor

We are grateful to the Revd Evan McWilliams and Revd Pat Willson for recording Video and Audio for this Sunday's Virtual Remembrance Day Video Service from St John's which is now available from this website and the Church's YouTube Channel.

Please Click here to go to our Video Library page to view the video of each Sunday service, going back to the start of the first COVID-19 lockdown period.  

Plans are being made for our Christmas Services which will be severely limited by the COVID-19 restrictions so please watch this space for more details over the coming weeks.

In the meantime the Archbishops and other church leaders are asking us all to share prayer themes at 6pm each evening during the coming weeks of lockdown.  They have suggested using these Prayer Intentions for each day of the week:-

Sunday: family, friends, and loved ones;

Monday: schools and colleges, children, and young people;

Tuesday: the elderly, those who are isolated and vulnerable;

Wednesday: businesses, the workplace, and economic well-being;

Thursday: the NHS and other key workers;

Friday: national and local government:

Saturday: all who are grieving, those suffering with physical physical and mental health.


Detailed prayer links and further prayer resources and suggestions can be found on the "Thy Kingdom Come Website, their YouTube Channel and their other social media links via https://thykingdomcome.global - as Archbishop Cottrell says, “We can pray to invite God to change us, giving us the solace, strength, and comfort we need for the difficult winter that is ahead of us.  Let us pray together at this difficult time."


Best wishes and stay safe!
