Welcome to our worship in wootton bridge!
HRH PRINCE PHILIP, DUKE OF EDINBURGH:
Further to the announcement we wish to join with the nation in remembering the Duke, and pray for Her Majesty the Queen and all members of the Royal family at this time. May they be afforded privacy and time to grieve without the intrusion of the media. Due to restrictions still issued for the current Covid19 pandemic, there will not be physical books of condolence in churches but the Church of England have opened an online book of condolence that anyone may add to.
Please be aware that it has been agreed to keep Holy Cross and St Peter’s churches open on a daily basis for private prayer and the lighting of candles until the funeral. Please do observe the Covid regulations when visiting the churches.
The Vestry Meeting and the Annual Parochial Church Meeting will take place at St Mark’s Church on April 20th at 7pm. If you would like to attend you need to book a place because of Covid 19 regulations……
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.
++ SERVICES ARE RESUMING ++
We are very pleased that we can resume worshipping at St Edmund’s and St Mark’s from March 7th 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.“

Ways to pray if you can’t get to Church
New digital resources
Available including weekly video broadcasts each Sunday; daily audio for prayer for the day, and night prayer; webinars for churches; daily #LiveLent content; new mental health reflections; and apps and smart speaker skills.
Following the upgraded work the church building is now a warm & bright space, with wifi available for hirers and users of the premises.
