CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE 4th JULY:-
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement that places of worship may re-open for worship from 4th July, much information has now been received from the government and the church authorities. We are not yet in a position to re-start services as we need to be sure that certain conditions are met and all the guidance is followed. We will keep you up to date with the situation at all four of our benefice churches and advise you as soon as any decision has been made to resume services.
After the recent announcement that places of worship could reopen for individual private prayer:
- Great Brickhill church is open twice a week for socially-distanced private prayer:
Sundays:- 10.00am – 2.00pm
Wednesdays:- 2.00pm – 5.00pm
- Bow Brickhill will open weekly for private prayer on Sundays from 5th July, 10.00 - 11.00am
The dedicated section “Coronavirus” on this website (icon on left) provides all the up to date information that we receive and gives a platform to access worship details. There is information about local worship materials and services that are available on the BBC radio and television, and live-streaming services from the Oxford Diocese and the Church of England
For fourteen weeks now there have been no church services and therefore no church collections. The cost of maintaining the churches however remains the same. Some parishioners have made arrangements to continue their giving to the church via alternative means, for which we are extremely grateful. If others would like to follow this lead, please go to the "Coronavirus Worship Details" page for details of how to set up payments to your parish.

A prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus:-
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
