Services at St Mary's and All Saints Dagnall
As the new variant of Covid 19 has led to a rapid rise in cases, we have decided that it would be prudent not to hold services in church during the period Sunday 3rd to 24th January. The Bishop of St Albans has given his permission for this, if the parish feels that it is the right thing to do.
We carry on doing our best to meet the Archbishops' challenge to bring 'church' to people in different ways, so if you cannot come to church in person, please revisit this website and our Facebook page each week to access our latest Morning Prayer video.
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 will be open for private prayer on Wednesdays 10-4 and Sundays 11-4. Please read the notices inside the church.
All Saints, Dagnall will remain closed until further notice.
