Trinity Winchester

The Big Sleep Out with family, friends and colleagues

Due to the current Covid situation, Trinity Winchester have made the decision to cancel their annual Big Sleep Out in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral. Instead, they are encouraging people to sleep out in their own homes on Friday 14th May.

For more details on how to get involved, visit their website using the following link.

Prayer for today

Almighty God,
give us reverence for all creation
and respect for every person,
that we may mirror your likeness
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Candlemas

This Sunday we celebrate Candlemas, The Presentation of Christ in the Temple. We recall the day on which Jesus was presented in the Temple, when he was offered to the Father and shown to his people.

This Sunday we celebrate both the joy of Jesus’ coming and his searching judgement, looking back to the day of his birth and forward to the coming days of his passion.

Why not join us in our live service tomorrow at 9.30 am or take a look at our words and music in the text version which can be found by clicking on the Benefice Services heading above.

DailyHope phone line

Are you in need of some daily hope during this lockdown?  The Church of England has a FREE telephone line for you to ring to hear comforting hymns, daily prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of the phone.

The resource is a Church of England initiative in partnership with CONNECTIONS at Holy Trinity Claygate, and Faith in Later Life

The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind and to provide comfort and spiritual nourishment.

If you feel that this is something that may interest you, why not dial the number?

BCP Communion Service

The service at All Saints, Compton will continue to be held on the first and third Wednesdays of the month.  Our next service will be this Wednesday at 11 am.  

However, we would ask that only members of the congregation who have been vaccinated attend and government guidelines continue to be followed, especially in terms of wearing face coverings and social distancing.

Sunday Services

This week we will continue with the temporary new normal of a streamed service on Facebook at 9.30am, and a Zoom service at 5pm. For the streamed service we will have just the minimum number of people present, all properly distanced. The feedback still seems to be good so we will continue as per last week. 

The link to watch the live 9.30 am service can be found on the Benefice Service page.

Do you know someone recently bereaved?

The Church of England, Ataloss and other bereavement charities have produced a useful video giving advice to support those around us who have suffered a loss during this challenging time of social distancing.

It’s never easy to know what to say and do to support bereaved people and things are even more difficult at the moment. The video may provide you with some help and guidance.

To watch the video click on the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQo8InmtcvQ&feature=youtu.be

Keeping in touch

Some of us will be missing contact that we’ve been used to having with friends and family. Please remember to contact those people with whom you kept in touch with before lockdown.

A telephone call, email or Zoom/Skype calls can be invaluable to us all, particularly those who may be feeling a sense of isolation due to shielding or who are effectively housebound due to the restrictions.

Alternatively, if you would like to be linked with someone else for a chat or assistance from time to time, please contact William, our Rector.  Contact details can be found by clicking on the Contacts heading above.

Communal Worship

We have taken the difficult decision to follow the bishop’s request and suspend in person services until such time as it is safe to resume. We will, instead, be offering a live streamed Sunday service. Please refer to the ‘Benefice Services’ page for more details.
