Eucharist - Feast of the Baptism of Christ


As public worship is suspended once more in our churches of St. Cuthbert, Benfieldside and St. John the Evangelist, Castleside, we offer this Eucharist for the Feast of the Baptism of Christ, Sunday 10 January - originally live-streamed with our Thursday congregation present.

We're sorry that it's been felt necessary to ask the Bishop for his dispensation to suspend congregational services. We'll be keeping the issue under review and will continue and hopefully develop further our online and other provision.

Christmas at St. Cuthbert's & St. John's

Christmas hasn't been cancelled... But it will be much quieter - with social distancing rules, no congregational singing, a much restricted capacity and face coverings. Christ is born, nevertheless!

Here are our services. There are restrictions on our capacity due to social distancing - but we hope to accommodate all who wish to join us within the 55 - 60 permitted at St. Cuthbert's. For St. John's we can accommodate far fewer - nearly full already on Christmas Eve, so bookings via Jean Carter are essential.

In a difficult time, we wish you the blessings of peace and joy which are the reality of God's purpose.
