A letter from Canon Caroline Pinchbeck:
All public worship in the churches of Market Weighton, Goodmanham and Sancton has been suspended under the guidance of our Archbishops.
The Ministry Team will pray at 8.30am and 5.30pm daily, on sundays this will be at 10.30am. The bell will be rung to alert the wider community.
We are developing resources for prayer and worship at home which will be made available either electronically, or in hard copy version which will be available in church. If you are happy to receive emails, please contact: email@example.com
A prayer in these uncertain times-
Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbour, and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety. give us strength to comfort the fearful, tend he sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake.
I am happy to send updates weekly as we move forward.
With my best wishes and prayers,
Regular updates will be given.
Daily Morning Prayer begins
From 20th January, there will be Morning Prayer in church every morning, Monday to Friday:9.00am on Monday and 8.30am the other days. The so-called Daily Office is the backbone of the Church. You are welcome whenever you can come.
This is a service which is held on Wednesday lunchtimes at 12.35pm.
It is a very short service lasting just 20 minutes.
This is a time for sitting down for a few short prayers, a reading, meditation and quiet reflection.
Sandwiches and drinks are served following the service.
Please come along and join us for a period of calm in the middle of the day and week.
Bible study group
The Bible Study Group meets in All Saints Church at 7.30pm on the first and third Mondays in the month and each session ends about 9.00pm, after prayers for whatever issue participants bring. The format is that the Group uses Bible Study Booklets, which prescribe a Bible text and a series of questions, that participants generally review before the meeting in order to obtain the most out of the discussion. It is a relaxed approach as we journey and discover God’s word together.
