Holy Communion, 28 November
Please subscribe to the St Mary's Eaton Bray YouTube channel to be notified as soon as our videos are available. This channel also contains all of our previous online services for you to enjoy.
We have resumed our usual pattern of Holy Communion services starting at 10am. These will be live streamed, so if you cannot come to church in person, please revisit this website and click the link to access the service on the St Mary's Eaton Bray YouTube channel. A copy of the service booklet is available to download.
If you have not yet been able to join us, please be reassured that our seating and procedures have been arranged to be as safe as possible. Although face masks are no longer mandatory, we believe that while the number of infections is rising, it is advisable for them to still be worn in church. We hope you will support us in this decision.
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.
All Saints, Dagnall is holding Holy Communion services on the third Sunday of the month at 10.30am but otherwise will remain closed until further notice.
St Mary's, Eaton Bray is now open every day from 10am to 4pm. Please read the notices inside the church.
You may have noticed as you walk around the villages some new pictures appearing in windows on the theme of the Christmas story. Some of us from the village churches have designed a trail to follow by spotting numbered pictures in the windows of houses, shops and churches in Edlesborough and Eaton Bray. Each day throughout December a new picture will appear in a different window.
The trail will start at Edlesborough Methodist church on December 1st. The pictures will stay on display until Monday January 3rd 2022 so you can also view them during the school Christmas holidays.
We have put together an Advent Calendar for you to enjoy images from around our beautiful church this Advent.
