Sunday 7th February 2021

Although in Lockdown we are technically able to meet, all our churches have decided that, for the sake of people’s safety, there will be no in-person worship at this time. We are, however, hosting a Zoom Sunday service each week at 10am.

You will need a few things to join in:
Please download the PDF below, print off and cut out before the service. (if you don’t have a printer, please ask and we will get someone to deliver a printed copy to you). It would help (but not essential) to have a small, thin skewer, long cocktail stick, or similar. You will also need to have a writing implement, a Pritt stick or paper glue or, failing that, Sellotape.

We will not be following a printed Order of Service.

Sunday, January 17th 2021

Although in Lockdown we are technically able to meet, most of our churches have decided that, for the sake of people’s safety, there will be no in-person worship at this time. Only Mursley will be holding ½ hour services in church each week. We don’t want to encourage travelling between the villages as this increases risk but if you are thinking about attending at Mursley and don’t on a regular basis please make contact with the Church Wardens first.

This week then we have:

9:30 – Mursley, Morning Prayer
10:00 – Zoom, Holy Communion

For those worshipping privately, the collect and readings for this Sunday can be downloaded here.

For the communion service, please have with you a small amount of bread and wine, plate and glass, to use in worship. The service booklet for reading on a computer is here, or for printing out as a booklet is here.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity also starts this week on Monday (18th). The theme this year is ‘Abiding in Christ’. There is text for a service you can use to worship at home during the week and a booklet for the daily reading and meditation. Please have a look at them and consider using them to join with Christians of all denominations learning what it means to be ‘in Christ’ at a time of international pandemic.

The service is here and the booklet is here.

Our next Zoom Coffee Morning will be this Wednesday, 20th, at 10:30.

Blessings,

David, Associate Minister

Sunday, January 10th 2021

For those I haven’t had the chance to say it to yet – Happy New Year. Although not the start we were hoping for let’s pray that with these vaccines over the next few months we begin to see a renewed hope ahead of us.

Due to the new Lockdown although we are technically able to meet most of our churches have decided that, for the sake of people’s safety, there will be no in-person worship at this time. Mursley will be continuing to hold services in church each week, these will be a maximum ½ hour. We don’t really want to encourage too much travelling between the villages as again this increases risk but if you are thinking about attending at Mursley and don’t on a regular basis please do make contact with the Church Wardens first.

With this we will be back to weekly services via Zoom, this week then we have:
10:00 – Zoom, morning prayer
11:00 – Mursley, Family Service

The collect and readings for this Sunday can be downloaded below:

Our next Zoom Coffee Morning will be Wednesday 20th, 10:30.
