This week's pew sheet, readings and sermon
The Rector, clergy and all associated with our churches in Lavenham and Preston St Mary send their most sincere condolences to the Queen and the Royal Family following the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
Our thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family as we keep them very much in our prayers. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
The Royal Family have issued the following statement, “During the public health situation, Books of Condolence will not be available for the public to sign.” Please follow this link to the Church of England website should you wish to add your name to the Church of England online Book of Condolence.
We are pleased to announce that, during the week, our churches at Lavenham and Preston St Mary are now open for private prayer, candle lighting and reflection.
Our Lavenham church is open on Sunday for public worship at 10:15am every week and at 8:00am on the first and third Sunday of the month. Alternatively, you may wish to join us by Zoom. Please see this week's pew sheet (in left hand margin) to find how to obtain the necessary joining code.
Please see the pew sheet in the left hand margin for details of Sunday services at Preston St Mary.
Each Wednesday at 10:00am, by Zoom or telephone, there is an informal, participatory time of worship and prayer (about 15 minutes) followed by a virtual 'coffee morning' for fellowship and sharing of news, information and ideas. All are welcome, whenever you can or wherever you are. This is an ideal way to keep in touch. Please see the pew sheet in left hand margin for joining code instructions.
Both of these meetings will be held via Zoom on Wednesday 21 April. For further details click on the APCM Notices tab in the navigation pane at the top of this page.
