“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
UPDATE: Reopening St Mary Magdalene Church in Geddington.
Another week in lockdown has passed, but you’ll be aware that things are beginning to open up now, certainly for those who are less vulnerable to the effects of infection from the virus.
The big news for churches is that we’re now permitted to open up for carefully managed gatherings. We have taken the decision to open St. Mary Magdalene Church, Geddington as soon as we can. The wardens and clergy are working through a detailed Risk Assessment provided by the Church of England. We hope that we will be able to open on Sunday 26th July from 2pm-4pm for Private Prayer.
We expect to open for our first service back together for worship on Sunday 23rd August at 9:45am. We will continue to run an online midweek service live from the vicarage on Friday at 10am. You are warmly invited to join us. You can also find our Thought for the Week here.

The last few months have revealed that there are many ways that we can support and uphold each other in these remarkable times. Please remember that YOU are the Church - that WE are the Church. So, let us continue praying earnestly, wherever we are, and let's continue to make contact with each other as best we can.
'May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’ Romans 15.13
Yours in Christ,
Rev’d Gillian Gamble
Priest in Charge
