Welcome to our worship in wootton bridge!
Statement from the Bishop
Tonight (31st October 2020) the Prime Minister announced that the Government would ask Parliament to agree a further period of a month’s lockdown beginning on Thursday 5th November.
In these challenging times, we in the Parish of St Edmund with St Mark are praying for all who in our world, in our country, on our Island and in our village whose lives are disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and particularly for those who are ill and for those who have died. On this page, we have left in place reminders of happier and more normal times, because the Church is there for everyone in good times and in bad.
We are very pleased that we can resume worshipping at St Edmund’s and St Mark’s from August 16th but, due to required social distancing and the need to keep a list of those attending for the NHS Test and Trace scheme, it will be necessary to book if you and/or members of your household want to attend. Thank you for your patience!
“Church is a community of people. Please let us know about changes in your circumstances so that we can support you.Through this difficult time, please know that God is with us, now and always.
With love and prayers in Christ.“

online edition of The Bridge magazine.
The church building is now a warm & bright space, with wifi available for hirers and users of the premises. There’s much more work to do to provide access to all areas … upgrading the lounge and kitchen area AND providing a purpose-built, step-free entrance to the church building
We recently received a grant from The WightAid Foundation towards the next phase of work.
Our thanks go to EVERYONE – volunteers & donors – but especially to Stephen Capps, who has worked tirelessly. You have all made this truly amazing transformation possible!
