New Bereavement Support Helpline from Mountbatten
Mountbatten Isle of Wight is opening a new Bereavement Support Helpline available to all those
across the Isle of Wight who have been bereaved.
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 – update July 2021 ++
The PCC agreed that the following measures should apply to services at St Edmund’s and St Mark’s now that the government’s COVID regulations have changed.
* It will no longer be necessary to book in advance to come to a service but you will be asked to sign in.
* You will be asked to sanitize your hands on entering the building.
* Wearing a face mask will no longer be compulsory but we hope that you will choose to do so.
* Receiving communion wine will still not be possible.
* Chairs in both churches will be further apart than they were in 2019.
We will continue to ventilate the churches and to clean them more often and ask that you not attend if you either have symptoms of COVID or test positive for it.
The best bit is that we can now all sing!
“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.
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!
