We look forward to welcoming you back to Findon Church at 10.00am on Sunday,

This is an all age service - please join us!

Gill Gostick's suggestion that we show our support for our fantastic community with a candle in our window.

Worship & Praise

We are looking for groups of musicians to take part in our 

Worship & Praise Service. This 

takes place on the 1st Sunday of

the month. If you are interested in taking part, please email the parish office: findon.rectory@btinternet.com.

All musicians welcome!

All activities and groups are cancelled until further notice.

We may not be able to access our churches in the way we are used to, but we continue to function as a community. 

Now more than ever we need the love of God and each other.  We are working hard to develop ways in which

we can continue to worship and to meet the needs of the church family and the community in our parish. 

"Let the door of our heart be open to receive, O Christ,
the soul of our being unlocked, to welcome you;
and the gate of our life flung wide, for your entering in
."
(Ambrose of Milan)

 

At this challenging time we are united in our prayer

and in caring for vulnerable members of our community through practical acts of service.

Helena and Colin continue to pray for everyone.

If you have any specific prayer requests, please contact the Rectory.

Please stay safe and well and be assured of our prayers for you and your families.

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid, in isolation 
or concerned about their jobs and businesses
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
