Sunday 5th July 2020 (4th Sunday after Trinity (Godparent’s Sunday))

St. Edmund’s will not be open for public worship this Sunday.  Shielding does not end until Saturday 1st August 2020, so St. Edmund’s will be taking a cautious approach to re-opening.  Please keep checking this website for further updates.  St. Edmund’s will, however, remain open for private prayer on the following days:

  • 11 AM Mondays & Thursdays

In light of many Christians who are still shielding, The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham will be live streaming Masses at 9 AM from Sunday 12th July 2020.  More information is available here: https://www.walsinghamanglican.org.uk/worship/shrine-prayers-live-stream/

With many Forward in Faith churches opening this Sunday, many of the churches we may have been tuning into for a live streamed Mass will no longer be providing this service.  St. Francis Friar Park is one of the churches opening this Sunday, however Fr. Ron Farrell is still offering a live streamed Mass via Facebook at 9:15 AM; you can access the Mass here: https://www.facebook.com/frron.farrell.1

The following worship resources are still available:

8:10 AM – Sunday Worship (Rev Lucy Winkett); BBC Radio 4

9 AM – Official Church of England Service; Church of England website (https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/church-online)

10:30 AM – Dudley Benefice Service (Parish Worship); Zoom (rectorofdudley@gmail.com) or telephone (0203 481 5240)

3PM – Choral Evensong (Sheffield Cathedral): BBC Radio 3

6 PM – Daily Prayers from The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham (https://www.walsinghamanglican.org.uk/worship/shrine-prayers-live-stream/)

Please pray for the following this Sunday:

  • For all godparents, on this Godparents’ Sunday, in their task of prayerfully supporting their god-children into faith and life
  • For the NHS and Carers, as we celebrate the NHS 72nd Anniversary today
  • For Churches and businesses, as they plan for reopening of buildings and assess what is and is not safe to do
  • Families at home and at breaking point, and those living isolated and alone

Have a blessed Sunday and Stay Safe
