We are delighted that after comprehensive preparations, following Church of England and Diocesan guidelines, we are opening the doors of St Swithin’s Church for people to come in for private prayer at a safe physical distance on Wednesdays from 12noon - 2pm.
In order to keep you and everyone else safe please take careful note of the following points:
OPEN SPACE IS NOW POSTPONED
In light of current events our building is currently completely closed. We would love to have our space open for prayer and will let you know when that is possible.
In this season the church building is set up as a safe space to come in and be still and pray. It will be open from 9:15am - to 4:30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can socially distance with some visual installations to help inspire us in our prayers.
We are in an exciting but challenging season of prayer. Pretty much every Christian meet would love to see their prayer life grow and develop.
This year we are trialling “Lent Streams”. These will replace weekly Life Groups for these weeks in March, and everyone is encouraged to opt into one of the groups on offer – whether or not they are regular members of a Life Group.
Our next Silent Prayer session will take place on Friday 31st January at 2pm in the Prayer Room here at St Swithin's. All are welcome.
Easter is a time of the year where Christians celebrate. At the centre of the story of Easter is the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. An empty cross has become one of the great symbols for Christianity, this may seem curious to others but continues to change lives today. Come and join us to discover the wonder of Easter.
6th March 2019, 7:30pm.
Do join us this time next week as we start our Lenten journey together... a season of facing reality with God, whether that's tending to the needs of our world, navigating challenges of life, letting something go, or taking something up.
There will be no 12noon communion service on that day.
