Covid-19 Guidance update
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.
In their letter the Archbishops have written the following:
We have called, along with our fellow church leaders, for a day of prayer and action this coming Sunday – Mothering Sunday (22nd March). Mothering Sunday has always been both a day of celebration for many and a sensitive and emotional day for some. Wherever you are this Sunday please do join in this day of prayer and action and remember especially those who are sick or anxious, and all involved in our Health Service. As one action, we are calling on everyone to place a lighted candle in their window at 7.00 p.m. as a sign of solidarity and hope in the light of Christ that can never be extinguished.
Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbour, and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake. Amen.
Please note our new telephone number: 07933 935534

Sunday 21st July will be a United Parish Service where we celebrate the Confirmation of congregation members from across our Parish. The service, at 10.30am at St Peter’s Church, Clearwell, will be led by Bishop Robert where we will be welcoming the family and friends of those being Confirmed. The service will be followed by lunch provided by the St Peter’s Congregation. Please note that this is the only service in the parish this Sunday.
