Coronavirus Updates and Resources

What does this mean for the churches?

We are now able to open our churches for limited socially distanced services. Please check our calendar for times and details of these. Following Church of England advice, we are not able to sing inside the church buildings but will be able to do a spoken-word service. Our outdoor Zoom-broadcasted service is open to all to attend in Paulton Churchyard. Bring a chair and print off the service sheet and hymns from the website. We look forward to seeing you all again.

What if I need help or support at this time?

Please contact your local church’s Church Warden. They will be able to help you find the support you need during this time. You can do this by visiting our Contact page.

Are there any resources we can use at home during this time?

Our new vicar, Adam Pitt, has created an excellent ‘Survival Kit‘ booklet. You can download it here. The hymns that accompany it, can be found on this page.

This booklet is intended as a resource for us to be able to continue to worship together during this period of lockdown.
We can read, reflect and pray together each Sunday at 9.30am. We may be separated in our homes for the moment, but we can gather together in spirit.
Until we can once again meet fully in our church buildings, we worship together in the knowledge that we are one body, with Christ as our head.

Zoom Services

We are now holding Zoom Services every Sunday at 11am. You will need a device with the Zoom app installed (PC, Mac or Smartphone). Microphones will be muted during the service until you are told to unmute.

In order to sign up to hear more about this, please join our mailing list. You can unsubscribe at any time and we’ll only send you updates about our church services and events.

What about children’s worship?

Adam will be posting video ‘Acts of Worship’ regularly to the the website. They can be found on the front page or you can see them all by clicking here. We will continue to email our Messy Church families with ideas and updates. If you’d like to sign up for these emails, please visit our Messy Church page.

Are the churches open for prayer?

Update: 21st June: We are now exploring the ways in which we may be open the churches for worship.

The prayer times are: High Littleton on Mondays, Farrington Gurney on Wednesdays, and Paulton on Sundays. The churches will be open 4pm to 5.30pm only on these days.

There will be clear guidance for how to remain socially distanced whilst you visit our churches.
