Therefore, there will be no services at any of the churches in the benefice until this suspension is lifted.
Apologies for the inconvenience, but please do pray for those who have contracted the COVID-19 virus, and for those who are vulnerable and must self-isolate.
The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19)
It means all Church of England churches will close with immediate effect in line with the Government’s instructions. There will also be no Church weddings or baptisms.
Funerals at the graveside or in crematoriums can still take place, but only in line with the Prime minister’s Statement.
Therefore, all churches in the benefice will be shut until restrictions are lifted.
Again apologies for the inconvenience, but please “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”.
Following on from our successful Word Space Workshop in November, Creators Space Hub will be running another Word Space on 25th January from 9.30am – 4pm at Torver School Room, Torver LA21 8AZ. I’ll be running another active workshop exploring Words, their Sounds and Stories, this time on the theme of SUFFERING & SALVATION with a focus on David’s Song of Deliverance in Psalm 18.
Word Space is open to everyone: those who use words, love words and create with words.
may be also be of particular interest to writers, speakers, teachers,
songwriters, actors and preachers. The day costs £5 and we’ll be
sharing our usual LOAF lunch in the middle of the day.
People who came to the last Word Space on Lamentations gave the following feedback about their experience:
I liked best really delving into the sounds and shapes of words and then developing the mime.
Relaxing into physically re-enacting and breaking down the individual words gave an understanding – deeper and from angles unexpected.
The way the group gelled together as we worked and experimented and took risks together developed a real feeling of a safe place in which to experiment.
Very enjoyable and liberating.
November, we were enjoying the workshop so much that we ran out of time
and didn’t have an opportunity to share and listen to people’s Words,
Creative Writing, Songs etc. So, in the January Word Space, we’ve given
the whole afternoon to sharing. You are welcome to bring some of your
words/writing/speaking/singing to share or just come and listen to the
contributions. For those who wish, there will be time for feedback on
hope that some of you will be able to join us for a fun day of sharing
and exploring words. Please spread the word. There’s more information on
the website. If you want to come, just send me an email to book your place and pay on the day.
This series was presented from the end of June to the beginning of August at the churches of Coniston and Torver. The seven churches is a message direct from Jesus to John, for the people of faith. What does Jesus find when he walks into your faith community today?
