Coronavirus update

In light of the current Coronavirus situation, the Church of England has decided to close all churches until further notice and have suggested the following options for you to access services and reflections online:

Rev Anne Hinks has prepared a sermon for Sunday 12th April and this can be accessed by using this link Sunday Services 2020.

Weekly service broadcasts - these are available each Sunday through the Church of England's Facebook page.

Time to Pray app - everything you need for Prayer During the Day, with variations according to the day of the week and the season of the Church’s year. Download for free.

Daytime prayer and Night prayer service audio - building on the existing daily prayer feed, this includes daytime prayer and night prayer for each day. It will be available as a downloadable app in the coming weeks.

#LiveLent: Care for God's Creation - the Church of England's Lent campaign for 2020. With weekly themes shaped around the first Genesis account of creation, it explores the urgent need for humans to value and protect the abundance God has created. This daily audio content is available via the app and daily emails. Sign up for free.

The BBC's Daily Service and Sunday Worship - radio programmes will be using some of the themes from #LiveLent as part of their broadcasts.

Smart speakers – daily prayer and #LiveLent audio content can be accessed via our smart speaker apps.

Live streaming services from churches - AChurchNearYou.com now lists hundreds of churches offering livestreams of services from across the country. When you visit the site, you will be able to find a list of services direct from the Coronovirus announcement on the homepage.

One of the many online bible reading and commentary websites such as Bible in One Year.

If you need advice or support, please phone or email Rev Anne Hinks whose details are on our 'Home Page', where you will also find a link to the Leam Valley Messenger at the bottom of the page and this will give you up to date information for the churches in the Benefice.

We trust everyone will keep safe and well at this very difficult time.

We are so lucky to have God's beautiful creation right here on our doorstep.
