Suspension of Worship in the Church of England

The Church is alive and active, but our buildings must close for a while.

Tuesday 24th March 2020

Church buildings are not open to members of the public at all – even for private prayer.

St Cuthberts family is more than just this lovely building, know that we are praying for you and your families during this national emergency.

Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms

  1. Emergency baptisms can take place in hospital or at home, though subject to strict
    hygienic precautions and physical distancing as far as possible.
  2. There can be no weddings in church buildings until further notice.
  3. Funerals can only happen at the Crematorium or at the graveside. Only immediate
    family members can attend (if the crematorium allows) – that is, spouse or partner,
    parents and children, keeping their distance in the prescribed way

Due to the new restrictions there will be no Baptism & Wedding enquiries on Tuesday Evenings for as long as the regulations are in place.

For Wedding and Baptism enquiries please contact us by email or phone 07873151329

For Funerals contact a Church Warden or Deacon Janet alternatively please email us.

Coronavirus liturgy and prayer resources

The Church of England has put together a page contains prayers and intercessions for 'personal or group use, special prayers for use if it isn’t possible to meet in church, and a simple form of prayer for the morning and evening, which can be downloaded, printed, and shared with those remaining at home or who are unable to access the Internet.'

Parish Safeguarding Policy

Please keep your donations coming

With the Church closed for all Services we have no income, apart from the 12 members of our congregation who make their Planned Giving donations by Standing Order. The church still must be maintained and secured and unless things change, we still need to pay our Freewill offer to York Diocese each month (£2,750.00 per month). We still have many bills to pay.

Perhaps some of you could set up a Standing Order with your bank, even if only for several months to cover the current ‘lockdown’ or think about making your donations by Standing Order in future. Especially, but not exclusively, if you already donate by the envelope system. No need to put money into the envelopes and wait until we can have Wednesday and Sunday Services again.

This will aid cash flow and budgeting, not just now but in the future.

  • For those using the Planned Giving Envelopes then put your donation into the weekly envelope and put aside until we reopen again.
  • You can send me a cheque periodically, made payable to St Cuthberts Ormesby PCC . Contact me via the online form at the bottom of the General Enquiries page for details of were to send the cheque.
  • You can donate using your credit or debit card via the the Give a Little link to the right.  You can choose to receive a receipt by email.

Remember, if you are a taxpayer, you can boost your donation by 25% by filling in a Gift Aid Form. Either for a one-off donation or for regular donations. Unfortunately, this is not an option with the Give a Little donations.

Holy Communion with Healing Ministry.

healing ministry

The Vicar, the Revd Jennifer Croft has taught the healing ministry to a number of churches and has been involved in this ministry for many years. Here at St Cuthberts we pray for the healing and wholeness of all people. This means that we believe that God can heal us physically, emotionally or spiritually – so that we strive for wholeness and wellbeing. In this service, upon returning to our seats after receiving communion, there is the option of receiving healing ministry through the gentle laying of the hands upon the head. We use a set prayer, so that everyone receives the same prayer. As a result, you may feel better physically, you might feel a sense of peace, joy or warmth.

Sometimes, we have a negative image or a fear of healing services because we expect something dramatic to happen(!) However, here at St Cuthberts we believe that the Holy Spirit, who heals us, works in a very gentle way and can heal the body, mind or soul. Only God knows where we need the healing the most, and through His ministers, He sends down His Holy Spirit to give us healing. For example, we might feel burdened by something, but through these prayers, it may lift and we can feel better immediately.

**Healing Ministry is complimentery and should not be used as an alternative to, or in opposition to, any ongoing medical treatments.
