Latest News on Church Re-opening
Opening for Sunday Services
We are thankful to be allowed to open for Sunday services from 5 th July, but with careful social distancing, hand cleaning and other safety precautions.
We will have one service in each church on a Sunday:
10am in St. James, Emsworth
11am in St. Thomas a Becket, Warblington
Social distancing means that we have to limit the numbers in each Church building and therefore we reluctantly need to ask you to book in if you would like to come to the Church building.
Bookings open on Monday at 9am for the following Sunday. You can make a booking by email to email@example.com or by telephone on 07579 798010.
Opening for Personal Prayer
We are delighted to announce that both our churches are now open for personal prayer on Sundays from 2-4pm and Wednesdays from 12noon-4pm.
Join our services on line
We would be delighted to welcome you to our online services posted on this webpage every Sunday (and available all week). We also have a Zoom based service most Sunday mornings. If you would like to join us, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to Zoom.
We also have a dedicated phoneline where people can listen to these – 01243 957233.
The Parish consists of two churches – St. James’ Church in the heart of Emsworth and St. Thomas à Becket Church in quiet and beautiful surroundings at the end of Church Lane Warblington (see our Parish for maps and directions).
More importantly, we are a community of people who, inspired by God, seek to serve our local community and express the love that God has for all people. We aim to be a community that is welcoming, loving and faithful to God, which is all the more important in our current circumstances.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we are committed to continuing to pray for our community and our nation. Each Sunday we record a service so that we can come together in worship from the safety of own homes. To watch the latest service click here. You can also view the content of our Facebook Page, even if you don’t have a Facebook account. We have also created a Digital Library that has services from previous weeks, messages from the Diocese of Portsmouth and some other resources that you might find helpful at this time. If you are interested in joining a zoom meeting either for the youth or breakfast church then please contact the parish office for access details. email@example.com Tel: 07967 588520
We are also committed to providing practical help and support for any in our community who need it.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 07579 798010 if you or any neighbour that you know needs help.
We will aim to keep you updated regularly through this website and directly by email where appropriate.
