COME AND WORSHIP WITH US
The Church of The Holy Innocents remains open for public worship during the current National Lockdown. You do not need to book a ticket to attend any of our services. If you do not normally worship with us your details will be recorded for Track and Trace purposes. Sunday services follow the usual pattern of 8:30 a.m. Holy Communion (BCP) and 10:10 a.m. Parish Eucharist (Common Worship). There is currently no regular mid-week service. Special and Seasonal services will happen as advertised. We continue to support our various charities both locally and internationally. Please help by making a donation if you are able. If you would like to pray quietly in the church or receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation please contact a member of the ministry team. If you feel unable to attend the Church on a Sunday but would like to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist please ask one of the clergy for pastoral support. We are a caring and cohesive community. We are here for one another as The Body of Christ in the world – both the Church gathered and the church dispersed. Please have the courage to ask for the help you need and the love to serve one another as Christ served us. Please reach out to God in prayer and reach out to one another in the Fellowship of the Spirit. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10 Love One Another.
We are collating a list of helpful resources which offer both practical and moral support as we navigate these uncertain times.
Please continue to observe the Stay at Home Order issued on March 23: only go out for essentials and to enjoy daily exercise and green space; continue to work from home if possible and avoid public transport unless absolutely necessary; do not gather in close proximity or mix households; avoid confined and poor ventilated spaces; practice good hygiene – do this until the Public Health Officials deem the risk of contagion sufficiently low so as to avoid further outbreaks. Stay Alert.
Please contact the Vicar or a member of the Ministry Team for further information or assistance.
We are not without hope or resolve. We welcome your contributions and involvement in the life of our Church Family.
Love one another.
