Your church is open and here for you.
At the moment you cannot access our buildings, but you can exercise in the churchyards, and we are meeting and serving our community in different ways.
We are joining with dozens of people around the villages to put a note through our neighbours' doors offering help if we feel able to provide it - essential food runs, medication drops, someone to talk to on the phone or over the fence! If you do not have access to help of this kind please get in touch with the Vicarage - email@example.com,
You can also call 01508 492305 or 07855 774384.
At the Vicarage we have a small amount of long life food we have collected through our local foodbank scheme. This is available for collection for anyone who needs it on the Vicarage doorstep in daylight hours. Please be careful to reduce the risk of virus transmission before and after handling these items.
Please email us if there is something you would like us to pray about when we meet together: firstname.lastname@example.org You can find lots of information by clicking on 'Resources' above. You will find quite a few subsections so here is some help:
Advice on how to connect to our online meetings, and our Sunday service sheets, are under 'Coronavirus'.
Prayer service sheets are under 'Prayer.'
Materials from our Lent course are under 'Lent'.
Digests of our recent Ephesians talks, and suggestions for family activities based on the reading for each week, are under 'Ephesians'.
Families may appreciate tuning into the Worship for Everyone Facebook or Youtube page for a fun half hour or so of singing, bible stories, games, prayers and more, live at 4 on Facebook on Wednesday and Saturday, or catch up a little later on Youtube, featuring a family with lots of cooped-up children doing what cooped-up children do! Our family love joining in with it.
We are sending out regular email and Facebook updates, and uploading some videos to youtube. Our Facebook and Youtube channels are both called 'Venta group of churches'. We will try and embed some of those videos in this page. If you would like to receive email updates from Rob, the Vicar, and you are not getting them at the moment, please subscribe by clicking on the word HERE. We have to do this for data protection reasons.
Below you should find videos of some of us praying on our front step, together with Christians around the nation, on Wednesday 25th March. There are also videos of people from around our churches reading from the book of Ephesians, and a few words from Rob based on the same reading (and filmed at the church before the lockdown).
