Pray for someone special – bring an unlit candle to leave in church

You’re invited to bring a self-standing candle like a t-light, to represent someone you are praying for or missing dearly. Simply leave it on the tiles near the communion rail – all candles will remain in church until public worship is re-started, and Rev Richard will light them once a week and post this on The Chearsley Blog.

And share your experience of lockdown – bring your art to leave in church

However old you are, you’re also invited to bring a piece of art on a single piece of A4 paper, expressing in words or pictures your feelings through the lockdown – positive and negative. Simply leave these on the floor around the font  as a prayer for the whole community.

Introducing the Parish

Welcome to your village church! Come on an adventure as we give thanks to God the Father, find rest in Jesus, and serve others in the power of the Holy Spirit. We’re part of a team of 3 churches offering services ranging from the very traditional to the extremely informal; plenty of opportunities to get involved with activities during the week; and the chance to share important life events such as christenings, weddings, and funerals. If you’d like to know more then get in touch, or simply drop in to church – we’re open every day!
