The new National Restrictions effective from the 5 November mean that no services can take place inside our church until 2nd December. However, the Parish Church will remain open for private prayer between 9 am and 4pm every day.
The Sunday Service this week (22nd November) will be broadcast from Madingley Parish Church at 10am. You will be able to join this by clicking on the following link a few minutes beforehand: Girton Parish Church YouTube Channel . Please do not come to church that morning as only those involved in running the service are permitted to be there. Here is the order of service (All Saints to Advent) for you to download.
Afterwards there is an opportunity to meet up on Zoom to share coffee and fellowship. The link is the same as for the Morning Prayer and Compline services (see below) : https://zoom.us/j/99969825451?pwd=dlV4bkNHdlpWRWZNY0lFODBhUXhVUT09. Passcode: 476091.
Morning Prayer continues to be said every week on Wednesday at 9am on Zoom and Compline (Night Prayer) at 9pm on Thursdays. To access these services on Zoom you can click on this link a few minutes before the service starts. Alternatively, use these details: Zoom Meeting ID: 999 6982 5451 Passcode: 476091.
When services in the church can resume these are our usual arrangements:
Sunday services take place at 10.30 am every week (apart from 8th November), with Morning Prayer on the first Sunday and Holy Communion every other week.
A service of Morning Prayer is held every Thursday morning at 9am. This short and informal time is an opportunity to reflect on the Bible together and to pray for the needs of the world, the church and ourselves. It lasts around 30-40 minutes (depending on how much there is to say about the readings and how much we have to pray for!)
If you have a smartphone or tablet there’s a convenient “app” called “Daily Prayer” that includes everything you will need (available at the Play Store or Apple Store). Please bring a device if you have one. If you don’t have such a device there’ll be a few paper copies available, but please bring a Bible.
Please be assured that our services are planned to try to ensure that everyone can take part as safely as possible. Do use the hand sanitiser provided before entering the church & observe two-metre social distancing from others not in your family group. Face coverings must be worn inside the building. Please do not come to a service if you feel unwell. The names of everyone attending will be kept for a period of 21 days as part of the NHS Track and Trace programme. Further information is available inside the building.
A Prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
