Services at St Mary's
Under the new Covid-19 regulations announced by the Prime Minister on 2nd November, no services can take place at St Mary's for the period of this second lockdown. This means there will be no celebration of Holy Communion on Sundays or Wednesdays at St Mary's, Eaton Bray or All Saints, Dagnall.
We carry on doing our best to meet the Archbishops' challenge to bring 'church' to people in different ways, please revisit this website and our Facebook page each week to access our latest Morning Prayer video. These services have been greatly appreciated and given us much comfort and sense of connectedness throughout this troubling time. Many thanks to all for the time, skill and effort they have put into creating them.
If you are in need of help, please ring the Vicar on 01525 220261 or send a message via the contact page.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
St Mary's, Eaton Bray is open for private prayer on those two days from 10am - 4 pm (Wednesday) and 11am - 4pm (Sunday) so do come along for a few moments peace and quiet reflection. Please read the notices inside the church.
All Saints, Dagnall will remain closed until further notice.
