This Week’s Notices

  • Services in Church: Next Sunday, we are able to return to church for a said Parish Eucharist at 10:45. These weekly services will continue through December. Next Sunday, there will also be a 9:15am Holy Communion service at St Anne’s Church, Dropmore. Full details of all services in church are in the ‘Services’ section of this website.

  • This Christmas the Church will need, in the words of St Paul in Romans 12: v15, to ‘Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep’. We will aim to celebrate where we can together in one place – but also embrace a wider community that wants to join in the celebration but may not be physically able – or emotionally ready – to do so. The Church of England’s Christmas campaign – Comfort and Joy– enables us to build a campaign that both enables us to reconnect with the rich and joyous traditions of the past and to offer God’s consoling love in the present. 
  • During Advent, there are weekly reflections published on social media and available by email and app for each Sunday. It is easy to sign up to have the helpful emails sent to you. Then from Christmas Day to 2nd January, there will be a daily act of worship exploring a Bible reading and a familiar carol and encouraging us to look with fresh eyes at how the timeless truth of Christmas might shape our lives in these extraordinary times, and inviting us to hear again the message of the angels – good news of God’s unfailing love for a world that is weary and hurting.
  • Find out more about the Comfort and Joy campaign, buy the booklet, access online services, and download the free app featuring audio versions of all the featured carols at: www.churchofengland.org/ComfortAndJoy
