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

Advent, Christmas, Comfort and Joy
Celebrations for you and for Stroud

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.

Download the app Google Meet first. Open the app and give it the permissions it needs to access your camera and microphone.

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.
