From 5th November until at least 2nd December the church cannot be used for public worship. The church will be open for personal prayer most days. And our online worship will continue as previously planned. We will get through this! And the Vicar remains available if you want something prayed about, or just for a chat, or if you need help – there is no shame… just ask.

Online services are continuing and can be found on the Worship on the Web page or the Dial a Service phone line (01902 906585).

The Worship on the Web service can be viewed online from 10 am each Sunday.

The Vicar is continuing to offer daily prayer from the Vicarage which is streamed live on Facebook. Find these on Worship on the Web.

Find Virtual Sunday School each week on our Sunday School on the Web page.

Following Christ in the footsteps of St Chad,
by living out our faith;
taking the church to the community;
and growing the church.

Pattingham Church

To build up spiritual resilience, we offer this series of prayers.

1 December 2020

God with us in our individual struggles,
God with us in our common ordeals:
there is a freedom that comes in knowing
that life is simply hard;
not because we’ve done something wrong,
or because we fail to see
something obvious to others,
but simply because life itself is hard.
May that never become the licence
to devalue another person’s hardships
or the invitation to let our fears
fill the space that opens up.
May it become instead a moment
to marvel at your gift
of unconditional love:
the security that provides us with
a confidence not our own.
