Services & Prayer Resources


Services at both St Edmunds Church and St Marks Church have resumed.
All services will have to follow the COVID-19 guidelines which means masks must be worn and social distancing must be maintained.
It will be necessary to book for services, as before, via the website ( or using the ansaphone service on 301880 – please remember that the ansaphone takes a long time to pick up!
For now, the PCC has decided not to hold Evensong at St Edmund’s on the second and fourth Sundays but the 0800 Holy Communion on the first Sunday and all the Wednesday morning 0930 Holy Communion services will take place.
St Mark’s Church will have a 0930 service every Sunday morning following the normal pattern but the Brunch service will still be for family groups only.
The PCC also agreed that St Edmund’s would be open for services only.  We hope to return to having St Edmund’s open for private prayer when it becomes unnecessary to monitor and clean after every visitor.
Hopefully church life will be able to open up fully as we approach the summer – keep on praying!
As we continue through these difficult times, please know that God is with us, now and always.
With love and prayers in Christ
