Daily Prayer

Our daily prayer posts are available to view here.

Sunday Services

Our online Sunday Service is available here (from 9am each Sunday).

Key Information

  • All our groups, services, and events are suspended with immediate effect.
  • If you belong to a home group, please ask your group leader if you are meeting.
  • Please observe good hygiene at all times – washing your hands with soap and water for twenty seconds is the best way to avoid getting infected. (Click here to download our Lord’s Prayer hand-washing poster.)
  • We are all advised to observe ‘social distancing’. We may not be able to see each other, but we can still pray for and talk to one another on the phone – please keep looking out for one another!

No-one knows how long this will all last for. I will keep this page updated with the latest information.

Pastoral Care

If you are self-isolating and need assistance with shopping for (e.g.) groceries, household or pharmacy items, please contact Janet Hine, or the church office on (01827) 62573, or email hello@amington.church.

Our pastoral care team (Ray, Sue, Carol and Mandy) have each taken roughly a quarter of the church family. They will each call or contact everyone on their list at least once a week. I will then call everyone in the church family directory once a month, on the day you are on the prayer calendar (give or take a day or two!).

If you are or become aware of someone who needs help or support, please let me know.

Services

Sunday Services will be available here each week. I am hoping we will be able to live stream some services. Watch this space!

Lent Prayers

I will be posting a form of our Lent Daily Prayers here – please use it, or at the very least the prayer calendar from the Lent Prayer booklet. If you don’t have one – or know someone who needs one – please let me know and I will print and deliver one to you.

Maundy Supper, Holy Week & Easter

This is unfortunately cancelled – as I suspect will be most, if not all, of our Holy Week and Easter services.

Church Family Weekend Away

I still hope and pray this will go ahead. If we are forced to cancel it, we will attempt to re-book it for the same weekend in 2021 – in which case you will be given the option either to have a refund, or to pass your deposit over into 2021.

For more information, please read these notes from the recent Standing Committee meeting.
