Current situation

Thank you for using this online resource as the lockdown continues and church buildings remain closed to help stem the spread of Covid-19. Whilst we cannot meet together at present, there will be fresh worship material on the website each week. Do download the welcome sheet to access the order of service and readings. We hope you will feel connected to other people and be able to worship God from wherever you are.

Though many of us are having to self-isolate, we are joined together in love and prayer – we may be apart but we’re never alone. If you need help in any way, do please be in contact with any of us.

Thoughts from Rt Revd Olivia Graham, Bishop of Reading, on how we should be during the coronavirus pandemic

  • Calm: the opposite will lead us to do things which might impact seriously on others – like panic buying
  • Caring: those who self-isolate (those in high-risk groups, or who have been in contact with the virus) need to know we care about them. Phone calls, messages, letters, cards, food left on the doorstep are all signs that we care
  • Considerate: let’s look out for one another and act collectively to prevent the spread. It isn’t just about me, it’s about us
  • And of course, Christ-like: let’s live hopefully, love generously and pray earnestly – and let’s bless each other by the way we behave
