"In line with Government advice and these are unprecedented times; the Churches of the Chase Benefice are not holding public Services until further notice.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 23rd March, the Archbishops have written to clergy in support of the measures, requiring that churches must now close both for private worship and public services.
Our church buildings are therefore now closed for public worship, private prayer and all other meetings and activities except for vital community services until further notice.
However, the Rector will be conducting Worship with my family each Sunday Morning at 10:30 am and would ask that each Church Member join him in prayer in your own homes by either reading Morning Prayer, or at least the Lord’s prayer and intercessions. You can use this link to a copy of the Benefice Short Morning Prayer."
You can find the readings for the Sunday on this web page;
In our prayers at home;
Pray for the containment of the Coronavirus.
Pray for our nation’s leaders, that they would have wisdom in how to deal with the virus.
Pray for medical professionals, that God would guide and protect them as they treat those affected.
Pray for our brothers and sisters whose businesses and job stability will be affected.
Pray especially for those who are the most vulnerable to the effects of the virus.
A call to Daily Prayer
There is a world-wide initiative for everyone to pray at 12 noon, beginning with the Lord’s Prayer. In addition intercessions such as those above can be used, adding you own family and friends. There is on the Chase Benefice Website.
Each Sunday there is a "selection" of services across most of the parishes in the Benefice to allow parishioners to go the form of worship that they enjoy. The outline details of the services for each parish is on the relevant village page. The full list of Benefice services for the next 4 months can be accessed via the menu on the right. Each month is separate and you will need to scroll down each individual month to get all the information!
Below the list of services there are links to service sheets for each service. These will open in a new window.
