Across the variety and diversity of Stroud, we are working together for the common good through faith in God​

Buckingham Palace announces the death of Prince Philip.

We’re sad to hear that Prince Philip has died and our thoughts and prayers are with Queen Elizabeth, their four children, eight grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and their wider family.

We’re making a plan to open churches for private prayer and reflection. Check back here and on our social media for updates.

The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The Bishop of Gloucester, the Right Revd Rachel Treweek said, “It is with deep sadness that we hear the news of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death. This is a huge loss to the nation and one which we will all feel deeply for a long time to come. We give thanks for Prince Philip, his unwavering love and support of the Queen, and for the good he has championed and enabled within our country and beyond over so many years.

“We offer our deepest condolences to the Queen and the Royal Family as we pray for them to know God’s comfort and everlasting love in the days and weeks ahead. May the hope and peace of Jesus Christ sustain us all.

“While not all of our churches are able to be open at the moment, everyone across our communities is invited to join our online worship, which can be found at www.achurchnearyou.com.

“A special online memorial book, which everyone is invited to sign can be found here.

“May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Spaces and Places

There are many opportunities throughout the week to gather or find space for yourself.

Some of these are physical in our church buildings and some are online.

You are very welcome.

10:10 am

Every day we are pausing at 10:10am. Pausing to pray, to listen, to know we are part of something bigger than ourselves.

Some will read the bible, some will reflect on what they can see from their window.

And after the pause – to do something. Phone a friend, a neighbour, check in with someone you haven’t spoken to for a while.

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
