Our Church under Lockdown
With access to St James Abinger and Christ Church becoming less restricted, we will be celebrating first in St James on Sunday 19 July and then in Christ Church, on Sunday 26 July.
We will also continue our live streamed on YouTube servicers, details of which are on our Services page. Zoom services might be resumed as part of our service mix in the autumn.
In addition, every Sunday Tony will continue to lead us in prayer and to provide us with some challenging thoughts about life as Christians on YouTube. The full set of postings is on our YouTube page.
Christ Church is open for private prayer and thought on Mondays, between 9.30 and 11.30am and on Thursdays between 4.00 and 6.00pm.
To help us through these challenging times, more prayers and thoughts are provided on our website every Monday and Thursday by the Leith Hill Ministry team - Tony, David Grundy (Associate Minister based in Holmbury), Virginia Smith, lay readers Hilary Swift and Martha Golden and Mad Berry
From Tony Berry
We live in changeable times. Things that seemed normal now are not, things we assumed - we cannot rely on, things we did routinely have been cancelled.
As we look to the future, our main concern is for people who are vulnerable, in need of support, or suffering. There are local initiatives that have been started which will attempt to meet those needs. If you can support those then please do. If you are in need of support, then do please ask for help. If you don’t know who to ask, then please do get in touch with the Parish Office and we can point you in the right direction.
We will try to keep people updated through the church websites and are putting Bible verses, thoughts and prayers on there which we hope might bring hope, encouragement and support during this difficult time.
Do get in touch - 01306 737746 - if you are anxious, have some questions, or need support.
I wish you God’s peace and hold you in my prayers.
