During these challenging and unprecedented times where our Churches are closed, it is important that we continue to be people of hope and confidence as we live a different pattern of prayer and worship. At this time, we will be live streaming via Facebook and the service sheets can be downloaded, to enable you to join in with the service from your own homes.
For further details please visit our ‘Online Services’ section of the website, which can be accessed by clicking HERE.
Due to the current uncertainty of the impact of Covid-19 (Coronavirus), the difficult decision has been made to postpone our Celebration of Baptisms weekend due to take place on 20th – 22nd March 2020.
We will keep you updated once a new date has been arranged, which will hopefully be in the not too distant future.
At present, all other Church services, including the Mothering Sunday Service at 10am on 22nd March, will still take place and there will be precautionary measures taken to try and minimise the risk. These will include a hands free peace and standing to receive Communion, which will consist of bread/wafers only.
Please join us this Sunday as we welcome Bishop Robert to our Benefice, starting with a Benefice Service at 10.30am at Lydbrook.
After tea/coffee, there will be a gentle walk for those who would like and are able to participate or, alternatively, sit and listen to an introduction to the story of Lydbrook Church.
After lunch, we will host question time with Bishop Robert.
Please note there are no other services this Sunday across the Benefice.
Please join us on Sunday 1st March as we welcome Bishop Robert to the Benefice.
Itinerary for the day is…
10.30am – Benefice service at Lydbrook followed by tea/coffee.
12 noon – Join us in either a gentle walk around the village or enjoy listening to an introduction to the story of Lydbrook church.
1.00pm – Share in food and friendship as we sit to enjoy a delicious, hot two course lunch.
2.00pm (approx) – Question time with Bishop Robert – this could include prayer, Lent, Sunday worship, the environment, faith journey, the question is yours to choose!
To aid our question time, there will be boxes in all our churches for the next few
weeks to enable people to ‘post’ their questions (named or anonymous) in advance.
To help with catering, please email either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org by 24th February 2020.
We look forward to welcoming you all.
