We hope that you will find these short acts of outdoor worship a helpful stepping stone to the time when we can all be able to worship safely again in our buildings.  Each service will act about 20 minutes. If you prefer to sit for the service please bring a picnic chair!

If the weather is poor we will try to make alternative arrangements.

For last  minute information please phone 01434 676852

Some of our churches are also open every day for private prayer:

Slaley and Edmundbyers 10am to 5pm

Blanchland, Tuesday 11am to noon and Friday 5pm to 6pm

Whittonstall, Sundays 10 to 4pm

We’ll continue to publish prayers and ideas for worship at home (see the list on the right of the screen), but if you would like to receive these regularly by email please contact Helen who will be delighted to add you to the list:

Above all, please be assured that the life of prayer and service continues in our parishes.

Please our live stream of worship at 10.30am on Sunday – or watch it later on our Facebook page:

May the love of God continue to hold and keep you safe.
