CORVID-19 UPDATE – 12 JUNE 2020

We were reluctant to close our doors on Mothering Sunday this year as lockdown was announced – but recognised how important it is to keep the community safe – both our congregation and the wider community who would be affected by our actions. Since then Fr Alan has continued to say Morning Prayer every day in the closed church and a regular pattern of Masses – Sunday 10am, Tuesday and Wednesday 7pm as well as the major festivals. With any luck (!) you can join all of these Masses on our website here and, in addition, the...

JOIN OUR STREAMED MASSES FROM ST JOHN’S

Until the church can safely reopen Fr Alan is celebrating the Mass in the closed church and streaming by Zoom. You are very welcome to join the Mass: Sunday at 10am, Tuesday at 7pm, Wednesday at 7pm. During August only the Sunday Mass will be streamed, and only on 2 and 9 August. There will be a non-eucharistic service on Sunday 16 and 23 August. Who would have imagined! But I’m now convinced that the health of our congregation and our local community is more important than our pattern of services. Does our worship continue? Yes,...

CORPUS CHRISTI MASS WITH BENEDICTION – Thursday 11 June, 7pm

The streamed service will be here Meeting ID: 731 493 2697 Password: 6DwUji The Feast of Corpus Christi, or the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ (as it is often called today), goes back to the 13th century, but it celebrates something far older: the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion at the Last Supper. While Holy Thursday is also a celebration of this mystery, the solemn nature of Holy Week, and the focus on Christ’s Passion on Good Friday, overshadows that aspect of Holy Thursday. This service provides the opportunity...

THE FEAST OF ST JOHN BEFORE THE LATIN GATE

Wednesday 6 May 2020 IN the year 95, St. John, who was the only surviving apostle, and governed all the churches of Asia, was apprehended at Ephesus, and sent prisoner to Rome.

The martyr doubtless heard, with great joy, this barbarous sentence; the most cruel torments seemed to him light and most agreeable, because they would, he hoped, unite him forever to his divine Master and Saviour. But God...
