St Cuthberts Notes

Update on Services in Church:

Due to the current restrictions there will be no services in church until further notice. Services will continue on You Tube and the order of service will be sent out to those who do not have access to technology as we have been doing during the pandemic.

Join the full service each week online, including readings, intercessions, and the hymns played by Philip using this link to our YouTube Channel:

The Sign

The deadline for articles and information for the February issue of The Sign is Sunday 17 January. Please send to Thank you.

Sunday Social on Zoom.

Every week at 11.00am from Sunday 7 February.

Vestry has been looking at different ways we can connect with each other as we continue to lead very restricted lives during the pandemic. One of the new initiatives is our Sunday Social.

Why not enjoy your morning coffee whilst chatting to others from St Cuthbert’s, catch up with the news and chat about different topics ? We will be together for about 45 minutes in smallish groups so it will be easy to speak to one another. If you are not familiar with zoom or do not have a computer, but are part of a bubble who do, why not invite your family member or friend to join you, and come on Zoom together ? You may not know but you can also join a zoom meeting without a computer from your landline phone.

The Zoom link will be included in The Sign, in our weekly pewsheets and will be separately mailed to everyone.

To find out more about Sunday Social, about joining us by phone, please contact Wendy Paerson, Patricia Brignall, or Philip Rossiter.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 7 February !

Weekly Prayer:

As The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity begins 18 January, we use their prayer.

Lord, you invite us to abide in you who are the vinedresser who cares for us with love. You call on us to see the beauty of each branch united to the vine, the beauty of each person. And yet too often the differences in others make us afraid. We withdraw into ourselves. Our trust in you and in one another is lost. Come and direct our hearts toward you again that as one family we may praise your name. Amen
