If you’re not coming to the meeting, why not watch Panorama as they explore racism in the CofE at 8.15pm? It promises to be an important and challenging and essential watch, demanding our engagement and our improvement as a Church.
The 8am BCP Mass starts back at St Paul’s on Sunday the 25th of April. It lasts about 40 minutes and you’re welcome to just turn up. The service will happen on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month only for the time being.
Morning Prayer starts back at 9am on Tues and Fri each week in Church from Tuesday the 27th of April- do please come along, with the app on your phone and a face mask. We will continue to do MP on Mon and Thurs on Zoom at 8.30am for the foreseeable future.
Deanery Compline is carrying on, on a Wednesday evening at 8.30pm. It is a beautiful and stilling 20 minute service, and really easy to join in with:
