Coronavirus

COVID UPDATE (08.03.21)

 IN-PERSON SERVICES STILL SUSPENDED

We have now decided that even though Covid-19 infection rates are declining locally, we should not re-start worship in our church building before late May at the earliest, in line with national URC guidance.

We continue to hold worship using Zoom on Tuesdays at 10.30 a.m., Thursdays at 8.15 p.m. and Sundays at 7.30 p.m.  Log-in details are available from secretary@staplehursturc.org.uk

We also share online worship from Maidstone United Reformed Church live-streamed at 10.45 a.m. on Sundays.  This can be found on the Maidstone URC YouTube channel.


From the Church Secretary

Our spiritual life is not dead – we continue worship Zooms (Thursday and Sunday evenings and Tuesday mornings), Maidstone URC hope to be able to live-stream services as a broadcast without a congregation (to be found on their YouTube channel) and there are the URC Daily Devotions Sunday morning services too. I encourage those of you with online access, and the time available, to find supplemental opportunities from other churches and Christian charities .

For those without online access, please continue your private prayer and Bible reading; remember you can telephone dial to join Zoom without a picture; and be aware of the DailyHope Prayer line.

DailyHope phone line

DailyHope, a free national telephone line, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of the phone.

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; to provide comfort and spiritual nourishment to the most isolated in our society.
