We do not plan to be back in church for services till 19th July. Because of social distancing we would ask that you let the church office know if you plan to attend the Sunday service or the Wednesday 22nd July 10.00am service. Thank you

The service plan for the coming Sundays is below to download. We will use this for the time being, or until we return to the church for services. It will also be displayed during the Zoom Service.

Advance notice – The next Psalms Course via Zoom will be on Sunday morning 5th July. The link is supplied by email on request.

Wednesday service readings and discussion

On a Wednesday morning we would normally celebrate Holy Communion. As part of the service we discuss the two bible readings of the day and draw out why they are put together, what is their significance, then and now, and finally what do we take away from them for our lives?

08/07 the readings are: – Hosea 10:1-3, 7-8, 12 and Matthew 10:107. Have a read, reflect, then why not feed back on the blog page under ‘Bible Discussion’. Hope to hear from you.

SPRING HARVEST IS STILL ONLINE for FREE From now until the end of May, the resources remain online.

Another recommendation, though I am sure there are far more than this.

This link is to a Youth session on Prophecy led by Paula Weston. (13/04). It is well worth a look.

John Lennox is a speaker who has been very informative for me. I encourage you to watch – Where is God in a Coronavirus world? John Lennox, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics and Philosophy of Science at the University of Oxford talks to Justin Brierley about God, evil and Covid-19.

After years of trying to promote Spring Harvest at Christ Church here is your chance to experience, though really not the same as being in the Big Top praising God with hundreds of others.

THE BIBLE APP (You Version) (Free) – Zillions of Bible version for you to use or listen to, David Suchet reading from the NIV (very calming). On iPad or phone, at home or in the church. Also themed readings to choose from.

CHURCH of ENGLAND LENT RESOURCES (Free) – Daily devotional by email. This years theme – ‘Care for God’s creation’. Go to https://www.churchofengland.org/our-faith/living-out-our-faith/lent-holy-week-and-easter/livelent-care-gods-creation

REFLECTIONS FOR DAILY PRAYER (£12.99) For every day of the week except on Sundays – when we are likely to be in listening to a sermon – there is a reflection on one of the readings from the service.

These are written by a wide range of contributors from across the Anglican church including both Bishop Stephen and Bishop John – so plenty of different approaches and styles. It also provides guidance for ways to approach the scriptures.
