Parish News - Extra - 6th March 2021
Here is Wednesdays service for those who didn't get chance to see it. Please click on the link below to access the video:
Weekly Online Services

We are now offering two online worship services each week which you can access by going to our website.
Every Sunday at 10am there will be a longer pre recorded service (about half hour) which is a bit more like our traditional Sunday service.
Every Wednesday at 10am there will be the shorter video with worship by John and his guitar (which will also be sent out via the Parish news each week to our whole Parish for those who haven't seen it.)
These two services are being added to our website at the times that we used to hold our weekly services in church. We hope that you will enjoy both of these regular online videos and that it provides you with the spiritual refreshment you need until we can meet again for worship together!

Our next service is Sunday 7th March 10am. We look forward to welcoming you!

You can access the services by clicking on this link:
All Saints Church is open from 9am til 3pm every day for private prayer and for you to come in and reflect during this period of Lent.

It is with much sadness that St Stephen’s has taken the difficult decision to suspend
Public Worship in the church building.
 St Stephen’s Church remains open 10am-3pm daily for private prayer but we urge you to observe the hygiene rules and keeping social distancing whilst there.
The Government Guidelines specify the following where a church is open for Individual Prayer:                  ‘A person or single household entering the bulding to pray on their own’.
St Stephen’s now has the official NHS COVID19 App for Track & Trace.
Please log in when in the building if you have the app downloaded on your phone.
            I don’t know if you have delved into any of the Church of England ‘Live Lent’ series of articles? These stimulate a bit of thought and reflection in this journey through Lent and are worth exploring.
            This week the continuing theme has been ‘story’. One of the reasons Songs of Praise on BBC TV has been one of the longest running series of its genre (nearly 60 years) is that it shared extraordinary stories of ordinary people.
Most of us are not called to be great orators but all of us have a story to tell – our own story. And those stories of life, faith and experience draw in those who hear them. Sharing our story touches peoples’ hearts; it is what generations of followers of Christ have done over the centuries. You tell your story not just for yourself but for others; you can be the inspiration others need and welcome.
So, a prayer………                                                                         
 Loving God, every person we meet has a story to share.
Help us to take the time to listen, to pay attention, and to be enriched by what we hear.

Do have a look at our lovely churchyard.
The ‘Churchyard Gang’ have been working hard in it and it is looking beautiful
as the 1000 daffodils planted last year are just coming into bloom.
