Be the visible compassion of God on Earth

Epiphany is all about revealing something that was hidden. Something that we could not see and now we do.

Helen Hill leads our season of Epiphany and this week she leads us through readings from Franca Giampa and Christine Brown, music from Mike Weaver and Tony Morris, Raga Babas, and St Martin’s Voices. Kate Stacey leads our prayers and Simon Howell reflects on our readings.

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.
