We live in strange and troubling times. Our lives sometimes seem to have been put on hold. Our daily routine has been suspended. Even our Church life can seem to have been interrupted. But looked at from another angle; as we do our utmost to support the efforts to limit the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are invited to reexamine and rediscover our personal Christian faith and our life priorities, with family, friendship and fellowship finding new ways to assert itself. We wish each other well. We commit to praying as one community in many locations. We have an opportunity to broaden our awareness that: 

Home is truly a Holy Place.

A Blessing on Our Homes

Given that we are all required to stay home as much as we can it seems a good idea to renew our appreciation of the gifts that home representsSome brief prayer services have been prepared focusing on different areas of home. So far six sessions are available: THE DOOR , LOUNGE , KITCHEN, DINING AREA, BEDROOMS and BATHROOM these can now be downloaded as pdf files from our:                    A Blessing on Our Homes Page 


Click here and see for yourself a new page dedicated to supporting the parish during these unprecedented times. We are also compiling a list of people willing to help with home deliveries, acting as hosts when the church is open for individual visitors. Further details of what we have in mind can be found on the Volunteers page . Take a look for yourself and if you have any ideas we can and please get in touch so we can all keep in touch

We now have a new Facebook page to help families to pray together at home and to find new ways of living as followers of Jesus in ways that try to offer the best of Little Church. Look out for the page when it is up and running at:

Trusting in God's Love and Human Kindness

One thing I'm sure of is that the only thing greater than human goodness is God's love. The love that creates, calms, comforts and consoles us through the care we show each other. So let's keep in touch until we can gather once more for public liturgy. We are working on providing additional means of communication via social media and will try and roll this out over the coming days. If you want to be contacted with any information about this please send your email address to: We can all support each other by undertaking to pray each day and especially on Sunday so please commit to making these trying times an opportunity to discover the significance of prayer and the gift of faith.
