Sunday worship cancelled

As we find ourselves in tier 4, we have decided to cancel our public worship in church for the moment.  Although technically we could stay open, it doesn't seem to be in the spirit of the current restrictions.  But we are reminded that God doesn't need us to worship him in a building - he can't be contained by bricks and mortar - he will walk alongside us wherever we invite him.

Crib Service CANCELLED

In view of the "yellow" weather warnings for rainstorms, we have made the hard decision to CANCEL the outdoor Crib service planned for this evening at Stockton football club.  Maybe next year .....  Happy Christmas everyone!

Remembering our loved ones

On Sundays 15th November in Stockton Church and 22nd November in Priors Marston Church between 3pm and 5pm, we are offering everyone an opportunity to light a candle and have time for reflection and prayer as we remember the names of those we have lost.  We hope this will be a simple but beautiful way to mark the loss of our loved ones as we have been unable to hold our traditional bereavement services this year.


Acts of Remembrance

Remembrance Day

Due to the current restrictions on large gatherings because of the Coronavirus, we have decided that it would be unwise to hold big Remembrance Day services in their traditional format this year.  We appreciate this will be disappointing for many people as it is such an important opportunity to pay tribute locally to those who have lost their lives in war in order to secure our peace today.  There will be a simple, short Act of Remembrance in each village as follows:
