We look forward to welcoming you to private prayer in the church. From 7th August we will be open from 2.00 - 4.00 pm on Mondays (except Bank Holidays) and 10.00 am - 12.00 noon on Fridays. Please DO NOT VISIT if you are feeling unwell, and click here to see the rules you will need to follow when you visit. Face coverings will be compulsory from Saturday 8th August.
We have carried out a thorough risk assessment to make sure we do this safely.
A huge amount of work has been done on making this possible – we are extremely grateful to John Cripps and the others involved in doing this.
Sadly, we do not anticipate being open for public worship in the immediate future.
You are welcome to join our online services on Sunday and Wednesday mornings - see below for more information.
The church garden is open to the public and you are welcome to use it for prayer and meditation, but please observe social distancing and wash your hands after visiting, as the seats are not sanitised.
During these strange times, when the church is closed and rooms in Shirley House are not being hired, our income has fallen dramatically, but we still need money to carry out our vital work. We have set up an online giving page where you can donate safely and securely to help us keep things running. Click on the button to donate!
Choose from one of the set amounts or choose your own amount - and if you pay tax, don't forget to complete the Gift Aid declaration to increase the amount we receive by 25%!
Welcome to our Sunday2 service for Sunday 9th August, Trinity 9, which is led by Judith.
You are invited to have a candle to light for the prayers of intercession.
As always, it will become public at 10.30 and continue to be available thereafter.
Last week, Zac and Julia made Jacob's Ladders with angels going up and down them. Zac's angels are sad - maybe they're fed up of climbing up and down?
Well done both of you, we love seeing your work!

There is a Zoom service at 11.00 am every Wednesday, except during August. The format of the service is readings with pauses, a led meditation, a psalm and prayer, with some music at the beginning and the end. There will be some time for conversation together at the end. Many thanks to Imogen for organising this service.
Unfortunately you can no longer join the service by phone to listen and speak without being on a computer - this feature has been removed for the time being because of increased demand. One way round this would be for someone to have a phone open on speaker setting so that you could listen in to the service that way. If you would like to do this please contact Janet Loughridge (258 4164).
The links to the Zoom meeting will be sent in a separate email message on Tuesday.
So why not join the Wednesday service as well as the one on Sunday?
Our previous live-streamed services are still available to view - you can find the links here.
We have set up a Facebook Group, as well as our regular Facebook Page, to help members of the congregation stay in touch. To join the Group please search for 'SAPLC Facebook Group' on Facebook.
We also have a WhatsApp Group - if you would like to join this, please send your mobile number to Clare: email@example.com.
