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

Some of our buildings are opening

Holy Trinity, the church by the hospital is open on Wednesdays 10.30-12.30

St Laurence, the church in the town centre, is open Fridays and Saturdays10.03-12.30

Households will need to keep 2 metres apart. Hand Hygiene will be available at the door. You may need to wait for a turn as only limited numbers will allowed inside at any one time.

We are reflecting on what it means to be church during lockdown and what that might say to us about how we are church after lockdown.

We have created a space to gather and share those reflections.

Let’s keep praying together

Our Morning Prayer and Compline are on this website and our Youtube Channel.

10.10 am and 9.00pm Monday – Sat

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.

The Vicarage is Open

Why not drop in for a cup of tea and a chat.

Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 10am

Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday the Vicarage will be virtually open for anyone to drop by between 10 and 11 a.m.

Why not prepare a cup of tea, sit in your favourite chair, click the link and you’ll find yourself in one of our video conference rooms with the Vicar and anyone else who has dropped by.

This is a virtual video conference. DO NOT turn up at the actual vicarages!!

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.
