Services this Month

St Edward's Church is currently closed. This comes after the Archbishops of Canterbury and York advised that public services be put on hold until further notice in response to Government advice to restrict public gatherings to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Far from having to “shut up shop”, the Church of England will face the challenge by becoming a radically different kind of church rooted in prayer and serving others. 

In his address on March 22nd, the Archbishop of Canterbury said: “In all of the current troubles, and they are very serious troubles, looking inwards will only reveal the limits of our own resources, and lead to deeper fear and selfishness.

“Acting in love found from God in Jesus Christ will do the exact reverse. As we look out from ourselves in love, we can enable people to find the place of their nurture, not their historic place but a new place where they meet God and find his consolation.

“As we share our consolation the mother love of God will enfold them. As we love the poor, go and give to a foodbank, call on someone who is isolated, do their shopping, pray with and for them from a distance, we will find that we are deeply consoled by our own gift of consolation."

In the meantime, there is online provision via Zoom.
