Sunday Service of the Word - 26 July 2020



Readings, reflection and prayer for the 7th Sunday after Trinity - with the Revd. Martin Jackson

Get ready for Sunday

St. Cuthbert's (10.30am) and St. John's (9am) are again able to open for the Parish Eucharist. The usual service but with necessary changes in procedure. We seek to worship God and to stay safe. This will require patience as well as social distance and hand sanitising - and as of this week the Church of England is giving strong advice in favour of face coverings; they're not legally required but much encouraged. We'll also be online. And here's the notice sheet with readings.
