Our All Age Online Service for May will be available from 11.00am BST on Sunday 24th May 2020 on the following direct link :
Join us at 9.00am BST on Sunday for our usual Online Service and 11.00am BST for our All Age Online Service, when these services will "Premier", which is that we can all join together in the service online. What that means is that a 2 minute count down will be displayed on screen before it starts and anyone joining the video will join at the same point that everyone else is watching, which gives us the "feel" of joining together. Whilst in this mode you will be able to rewind the video to watch from the start, but by default you'll join at the point in time we have gotten to.
After a short while after the end of the "Premier" of our service, the video will be automatically converted to a "normal" video on YouTube and will then play from the start, as you might expect and this allows you to join us virtual for our service at a time and day that is best for you.
Regardless of when or how you join us, be that for our Premier or afterwards, we hope and pray that this will be a blessing to you and help you feel connected to our benefice. Please do like and post your comments on the videos, and subscribe to our YouTube Channel and send your thoughts, prayers and feedback to the team either through any means you have. You can of cause also use email to email@example.com
as we would love to hear from you.

Following the unprecedented situation our country faces at this time with the Covid-19 pandemic, you will now be aware that we have had to cease all services and lock both Holy Cross and St Paul’s churches. This will be the first time in hundreds of years that acts of worship have not taken place in the benefice, but it is crucial at this time that we follow government guidelines.
There is still plenty that we can do across the Benefice in reaching out to those we know who may be struggling with isolation.
