Stanwick Group of Churches

Covid-19 Crisis

Worship in the Benefice during the coronavirus outbreak

Our churches are still locked for private prayer as we are unable to offer supervision of the buildings but Revd Camilla will still be saying the prayers for us all at home.
Stanwick St John, which is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, is now open and can be used for private prayer but there are no hand sanitiser facilities or other CV19 precautions in place other than the personal responsibility of visitors.

Services are recommencing on a staggered basis with a Sunday Holy Communion at 10.30am at Forcett during August. Details of services coming up, including hymns and readings are linked near the bottom of this page.

Rev. Camilla's Prayer Schedule (left) can be downloaded here. These pdf files can be printed off at home and/or downloaded onto your computer or tablet.

Here is Revd Camilla's suggested setting of Morning and Evening Prayer for use at home during the Coronavirus outbreak.

This Spiritual Communion may also be helpful for those who miss being able to attend the Holy Communion service.

Don't forget to look at our Facebook page and Twitter feed. The information on these is more immediate and short term and also gives you an opportunity to comment on what is there.

Also the longest running BBC outside broadcast programme and becoming increasingly popular is Choral Evensong. The broadcast is on BBC Radio 3 on Wednesday afternoons at 3.30pm and repeated on Sunday afternoon at 3.00pm. These services are now being broadcast live from St Martin in the Fields, sung by professional, London based choirs but with no congregation.

There will also be a 9.00am Sunday morning service on Zoom from The Rectory with hymns and readings but no sermon and no Eucharist. To join, see below.
