Bishop John

It is with great sadness we note the death of Bishop John Neale at Shockerwick House care home on Friday 17 July.  Bishop John was an active minister in our team for many years, finally retiring in September 2016.  Our prayers and condolences go to all his family and many friends.

Lacock: Sundays 10 am to 12 noon and Wednesdays 2-4pm (until end July only)
Neston: Sundays 11 am to 1 pm and Wednesdays 2.30-4.30p.m.

Please note that only parts of each church may be accessible, and you will be requested to use hand sanitiser on entry and exit. Whilst you are welcome to meet friends in the churchyard (within current social distancing rules) please do not arrange to meet anyone outside your household bubble inside a church.

A twice weekly newsletter, replacing the current WIS, Church News and Lacock Pew News, will be published on a Wednesday and Saturday giving more information.  This will be emailed to those who have signed up to our current newsletters.  You can be added to this distribution by emailing  Copies of these newsletters can be found at: TEAM NEWS.   Latest Issue 40 released on 1 Aug 20

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.
