THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK BEGINNING SUNDAY 17th OCTOBER 2021

“The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.”

Henry Martyn (1781-1812)

In the Church of England’s Lectionary (common to other Christian churches) we remember this remarkable missionary and translator of the Holy Scriptures for Indian and Persian (Iranian) readers on the anniversary of his death, Tuesday 19th October.

WORSHIP TIMES

We resumed our weekly Sunday morning church services at Easter 2021 at St Wilfrid's (9.00am) and The Presentation (10.30am), and now also our mid-week Eucharist at 12 noon on Wednesdays at St Wilfrid's Church. Additionally, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays the Daily Office of Morning Prayer is said at St Wilfrid's Church at 8am and Evening Prayer at The Presentation at 5.30pm. PLEASE NOTE: for your health and safety, we are still asking you to wear a mask throughout our services, and we are continuing to keep social distancing and an attendance register to facilitate contact tracing if necessary. ONLINE, our Sunday Eucharists at St Wilfrid's can ALSO be accessed via our Facebook Videos page either at the time or available there as a recording. The link is on our LATEST NEWS and CALENDAR pages.
