National Lockdown - Benefice Churches Closed

In view of the rapidly rising infection rate in the Vale of White Horse, the Ministry team has decided to close all the Benefice churches. They will not be open for private prayer either.

Rev'd Norma Fergusson writes "I am sorry that it has been necessary to close our church buildings again: we did not want to, but feel we have no choice in the current circumstances. The risks are too great. Whilst it is always our intention to offer services in church where possible and safe to do so, at present we cannot predict when that will be. Please keep an eye on the Benefice website and Facebook page for up to date information, or sign up to our weekly email. We will, however, continue our pattern of online services, some of which we hope to livestream from church as this is permitted under current guidance."

The regular online services continue: Sunday 11am communion services; Morning Prayer on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; together with the monthly ASK and Worship & Praise services. Please download the Newsletter for full details.

If you need to talk or ask for specific prayers, please get in touch.
