Although our church building is now closed (like all other places of worship) because of the threat of COVID-19, St Luke’s Church continues to be alive & active.
You will find on other pages of this website details of the “virtual services” that I am saying each week. There are orders of service that you can join in with at home, and details of our YouTube Channel which will soon have more resources.
I will be taking services on my own or with Carol in our Vicarage on Wednesday mornings at 10.00am and on Sunday mornings at 10.00am.
I will also be saying Morning Prayer in the Vicarage on my own each weekday at 8.00am & Evening Prayer in the Vicarage each weekday at 7.00pm. Some of these services will also be recorded. The words of these services can be found here.
If you would like someone to say a prayer for you or your family please text your request to 07419 989594 or email it either to email@example.com or to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pray for you. Or if you don’t have access to text or email, please ring.
Jesus said: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
Don’t forget, if you have no one to get essential supplies etc, let us know and we will try to help.
In the meantime I assure you of my prayers for you all.
In these weeks running up to Easter we are getting ready to proclaim again the Good News that Jesus Christ defeated all the powers of evil and death by dying on a cross and then on the third day being raised from the dead. He did this to bring new life and new hope for all people.
We very much need that Good News in these present difficult days.
We don't yet know how we will celebrate Holy Week and Easter, but I'm sure we will come up with some very creative ways of worshipping God and encouaraging one another.
We'll post more information soon!
It is important to remember we have a God who loves and cares for us. He has told us, ‘Do not fear, for I am with you’ (Isaiah 41:10).
We can have courage when faced with the fear of the unknown, because we trust in an all-knowing God who has promised to be with us wherever we go (Joshua 1:9).
You can find our YouTube channel by clicking on the button below
or by going to the YouTube website and searching for St Luke’s and St Mary’s.
There you will see last Sunday's service, Revd Gareth’s Messy Church, and services of Morning and Evening Prayer for weekdays in "Passiontide" (that is between now and Easter).
