Our services will be 'live streamed' with the intention of only recording those leading the service. Please note that those in the front seats may have the back of their heads in view.
OUR APOLOGIES for the lack of streaming a service on Wednesday due to the lack of trained hardware technicians.  If you could help please contact Marcus or Simon.  There will be NO streaming of the service on Wednesday this week for the same reason.
ie. we need somebody who can set up the equipment.
OUR grateful thanks to those who help operate the equipment on a Sunday allowing so many people to join in our worship from afar.

Covid secure public worship

Hands-Face-Space-Air

Please remain seated when you have come into church.
We ask you to continue to wear face masks at present.
Please keep your social distancing when leaving Church
and allow the choir to process out before you move.

COVID TESTING
Sadly several of our church members have been near people who have tested positive this week.  We would encourage everybody to be extra careful and if in doubt to carry out  a Covid test for themselves.  lLteral flows can be done at home, kits from chemists, PCR's tests if you have symptoms or a positive lateral flow test.

This week We give thanks for ...we pray for ...

For the parents and Godparents of Eltie-to be baptised this Sunday
For the our care for God's creation
For those effected by the rise in gas priced, those who have lost jobs, those who will struggle with bills
For those with Coivd, including Marcus and Santi
For the people of the DRC and all who need clean water
 

Bowl of Prayers

You are invited to place the names of those you would like prayed for into the 'Prayer Bowl' as you enter the Church.  These people will be prayed for in confidence during the service.
The Prayer Bowl can also be used for prayers of thanksgiving or continued requests for prayer, as it is emptied each week.  So please feel free to continue to put the same names or situations into it that are on your heart and mind.

Spiritual Communion Prayer

Please pray this prayer during the distribution of Communion in the church if you are joining us online or are not receiving communion.
 
Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits you have given us,
for all the pains and insults
you have borne for us.
Since we cannot now receive you sacramentally,
We ask you to come spiritually into our hearts.
O most merciful redeemer,
friend and brother,
may we know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly,
day by day. Amen.
 
Adapted from the Prayer of St Richard of Chichester
