GOOD NEWS FROM OUR CLERGY TEAM!​​​​​​​

 We have reopened our Church at Pentecost, the Birthday of the Church, from 23rd May for our service at 10:45, and in-church services continue at 10:45 weekly on Sundays.  The Church is open for individual prayer on Sundays after the Service until 4:00 pm. We continue to offer an online service each week as well which features on our YouTube channel and on our Services page, to premiere from 9:00 am each Sunday. 

Philip's E-alert of 29th June was about the taking of wine at Communion, using espresso cups donated by The Artery and available in the Foyer and at the Altar for you to take and use to collect your wine to drink when seated.  You are now encouraged, from 5th September onwards, to bring your own glass or cup from home, whatever you feel comfortable with,  and take it to wash afterwards.  Cardboard cups from the Artery will still be available in Church however.

Please also note that hymn singing is now happening for those who wish to participate - you will need to sit near  the front of the Church!

Stewardship Giving​​​​​​​

St Stephen's now has a Stewardship Giving page on give.net.  Thank you for your support for the church with a regular or one-off gift at this time.  See the green tab below:​​​​​​​

Benefice E-Alert of 31st July from Philip

It was good that folk came to The Artery after St Stephen's. Do consider it, it's a great, safe way to meet each other for coffee.

Monday morning sees our weekly benefice prayer on Zoom, 9.30-10. Here's the link:

Finally, our benefice was in the Church Times last week! I was interviewed about how we are coping with the re-emergence, especially singing and communion with wine.

Gardening News -  Arrangements for april 21 onwards

We will meet next at St Stephen's Gardens on Saturday 25th September from 10:00 to 12:00 am .

Sadly we do not feel able to enter any local or national competitions this year but will still work hard to ensure that the gardens are the best they can be for the Church and the local community.

If you would like to carry out some much needed gardening tasks at the Church on any forthcoming Saturday morning please contact Mary Greenwood (Warden) at greenwood.mary@btinternet.com   Any heip you can offer, including donations and/or plants, is much appreciated.

Thank you so much!
