Welcome to St Cuthberts Ormesby
Always know you will be very welcome and we hope that you find us open and friendly people who can provide you with relevance and meaning in your daily life. There has been a church here for over a 1000 years and we want St Cuthbert’s Church to be here for all future generations.
Building the Church Building the Kingdom
To proclaim Christ in our worship and in our community and make disciples of all generations
We continue to work with the Government and Church of England Covid-19 guidance in making the church environment as safe as possible and to protect everyone.
- Face coverings are mandatory in places of worship unless you have a legitimate exemptions for health, or where communication is impeded when wearing a mask, or are a bride and groom and those officiating at a wedding.
- On entering and exiting St Cuthbert's everyone is asked to use the hand sanitiser provided in the entrance porch.
- Please always keep to the Government physical (social) distancing guidelines while inside and outside the church. Remember this is still 2 metres without some additional control measures like a face covering.
To maintain physical distancing at the end of the service please follow the one-way system while maintaining physical (social) distancing.
A warm St Cuthbert's welcome still awaits you, although no refreshments can be provided at the end of the service, and we can no longer sing hymns during the services.
There will be no Wednesday Communion service for the time being.

A Prayer Chain & Prayer Cards
As a group we pray for the Glory of God, our church, the congregation and the land. We thank God for all the good things in our lives and ask Him to comfort the people we know who are anxious or fearful. To give healing, strength and endurance to the sick, as we are told in Luke11.9 Ask and it will be given you.
Praying as a group is powerful as told to us in Matthew 18 19&20 If two or three people come together in my name I am there with them. The prayer chain is a group of ladies from St Cuthbert’s praying for a need. It is always confidential and kept within the prayer group.
The prayer cards will be place in the pews. These are for anyone who needs prayers for anything that troubles them. The cards can be written anonymously if wished, or a name and contact details can be left. The church contact numbers are also on the card. The prayer group exists to pray for you. As a group we exist to serve our Lord Jesus Christ and the people of St. Cuthbert’s.
