Virtual Dementia Friendly Carol Service 2020

Due to coronavirus restrictions this year’s Dementia Friendly Carol Service will be a virtual event. It will take place at 3pm on Sunday 13th December in St Mary’s Cathedral, Coulby Newham.

Prayer for the Nation

During lockdown 2 the Church of England is asking Christians to pray daily for a specific area of national concern. A bell will ring each evening at 6pm, join us in a collective moment of prayer.

Prayer for Week 4 (30 November to 06 December)

Loving God,
your Son Jesus Christ came that we might have life and have it abundantly;
pour out your blessing upon our nation;
where there is illness,
bring your healing touch;
where there is fear,
strengthen us with the knowledge of your presence;
where there is uncertainty,
build us up in faith;
where there is dishonesty,
lead us into truth;
where there is discord,
may we know the harmony of your love;
this we ask in Jesus’ name.
Amen.

#PrayerfortheNation

We know that we are in the faithful hands of the risen Christ who knows our weaknesses, tiredness and struggles and whose steadfast love endures forever.

Prayer resources, including the daily prayer, can be found here. There will be daily prayer videos on Thy Kingdom Come YouTube channel.

There will also be a special service on 1st November at 3pm to mark The Commemoration of the Faithful Departed (All Souls Day).

There is a book at the back of church where you may write names of people you wish to commemorate so their names can be read out during the service. If you know anyone who cannot attend church due to coronavirus restrictions who might like a name added to the list please contact Revd Janet Caldwell.

Remembrance Sunday, 8th November 2020.

In this very strange year, due to Covid-19 restrictions on numbers and social distancing in the church yard there will be no ceremony at the War Memorial this year. The Remembrance Service will take place in church with our normal Sunday congregation and invited guests only. We are very sorry that we cannot make it more widely open to the public this year. Hopefully next year we can have a more normal Remembrance Sunday.

On the 29th November (Advent Sunday), The Revd Dr Amanda Bloor, Archdeacon of Cleveland
