"Trust in the Lord with all your heart" Pro 3:5

Dear All

You may have heard that the Church of England has suspended all public worship. This means that Sunday services are suspended with immediate effect, as is the mid-week service at St Helen’s.

We are still awaiting advice on weddings and funerals.

Please do be assured: we are already developing resources for people to worship at home - both digital and printed resources - and will have this in place by Sunday.

We know how difficult and distressing this is for many. Please do be assured of our love and prayers.

Mary, Tim and Stewart, Tuesday 17 March 2020

Public Worship is Suspended

Following the Prime Ministers speech on Monday 16 March, asking us to avoid 'all non-essential social contact', the Church of England is suspending public worship, until further notice.

You can read the Archbishop's letter (17 March) Here.

Being a part of the Church of England is going to look very different in the days ahead. Our life is going to be less characterised by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterised by the prayer and service we offer each day.
