Services in Church

Please remember that, even though many of us have now had one or more vaccinations, the coronavirus is still circulating and we can still transmit it.

Face coverings are mandatory in church and you should either scan the NHS test and trace QR code or use the sign-in sheets on entering.  Hand sanitiser is available and remember to maintain social distancing.  Please do not come into church if you think you may have symptoms of Covid 19.  In line with government advice, children under 11 and people with disabilities or certain health conditions are exempt from wearing face coverings.
Any decision to attend church must be yours, taken prudently and prayerfully in the light of your own health and wellbeing, as well as those around you. Please don’t feel obliged to come just because the service is happening – we won’t be offended!

Our regular online services and sermons continue and most of our churches are open at least once a week for private prayer.
Please download the Newsletter for full details.

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

The Benefice Payer for Renewal

Heavenly Father, in Jesus name we ask for a fresh outpouring of your Holy Spirit on our Benefice.
Help us to grow in our experience of your love, forgiveness and healing.
Challenge our contentment to stay as we are.
Renew our vision of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
That through our words and the way we live, others may be drawn to his way.
Give us the wisdom to seek your will and grant us the joy that comes from wholeheartedly following it.
For your Glory and the good of all your people.
Amen

This prayer was written by Revd Nicholas Gandy OGS and is used with his blessing.


Longcot Church

St Mary's Church is now closed for approximately 6 months for building work to create the St Mary’s Community Hub. This will include the installation of kitchen and toilet facilities, a meeting room and improved disabled access.
More information about the project is available here.
Services will continue in the parish, but will be held in St John’s Church in Fernham instead.
