Here’s what’s planned in the weeks ahead including our plans for opening more fully.

Sunday Services followed by APCM

We’re beginning a new sermon series in Isaiah 1-12 in our morning services. Why not read Isaiah 1 in preparation?

Our morning services will be followed by our Annual Church Meeting. This is a short meeting where we reflect on the previous year, look forward to the year ahead as a church, and ensure all the legalities are in place. You need to be at church and on the electoral role to vote at the meeting, but it would be good to attend even if you can’t vote! The church’s annual reports are attached and copies will be available at church.

9.30am – St. Bartholomew’s and Zoom

11.15am – Church of the Saviour

7pm – Zoom only

The Zoom code for our Sunday services is below:


Meeting ID: 347 838 844

As always, it would be helpful if you could let me know you’re planning on coming to the building.


There will be no Sunday School for the next two weeks.

Friday Live!

Friday Live! continues. Please join us on the church hall at Saviour if you can.


Church Walks

We’re planning on getting together for a couple of walks now we’re allowed to meet outside in groups. Here’s the plan:

Saturday 29th May, 10am – Short 1 mile pram friendly walk led by Chris

            Saturday 5th June, 2pm – Longer 5 miles walk led by John (sturdy footwear required)

If you’d like to come along, get in touch. And let’s hope the weather improves!


Unlocking and Attendance for School

We’re aiming for our churches to be ‘fully open’ from the 6th June. This means you don’t have to book to come along, although it would still be really helpful if you did. We will still have to maintain social distancing, face mask and have no singing or refreshments for the time being.

We are planning on opening up our Sunday School and Creche on the 13th June. If you’d like to chat through what these groups will look like then please get in touch.

It also means that from June parents who are hoping to register their attendance for 2020-21 need to come along in person and sign the attendance register in the foyer. If that is not going to be possible because of health reasons then please get in touch.

As always, these plans are subject to change depending on government guidance and the local situation.

Joel in 6 minutes

Watch out for locusts!



…so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.

John 17:13

Jesus came, not to bring us comfort or ease now, but to bring us joy. Joy in knowing the Father’s love, the forgiveness Jesus won for us and God’s presence with us by His Holy Spirit. Who can we share that joy with this week?

In Christ,
