“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
UPDATE: Reopening our Church Buildings
Great News! Our church buildings are reopening. From Sunday 23rd May, our Sunday Service will be online and in person.
The churches of St Mary Magdalene, Geddington and St Mary the Virgin, Weekley will continue to worship online, where we look forward to welcoming you to our services via Zoom and Facebook. We will gather online for worship which will continue to be live-streamed on Facebook each Sunday. A midweek Holy Communion will also continue online through Zoom at 10am each Friday. To access all this visit www.facebook.com/StMaryMagdalenechurch.
Making church onsite a COVID-secure environment is our top priority. We have a team working hard to ensure they're both special and safe. Over the last year the church has continued to be active in our community. Even though we were apart we were still able to worship together. The challenge remains to discover different ways of being the Body of Christ together. The ability of many to worship online, of others to be in touch with each other over the telephone, and all of us to pray wherever we are, can continue to feed and strengthen our community.
We hope that this blessing will bring you comfort in the weeks ahead:
we praise you for the many blessings
you have given to those who worship you
in this house of prayer:
and we pray that all who seek you in this place may find you,
and, being filled with the Holy Spirit,
may become a living temple acceptable to you;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
Yours in Christ,
Rev’d Gillian Gamble,
Priest in Charge
