With effect from 24 March 2020, all Church of England churches were closed, including for private prayer, in an effort to help limit the transmission of the coronavirus COVID-19.
Sadly our Churches in Silsoe, Pulloxhill and Flitton are, therefore, now closed until the Government instruct us that is is safe to re-open but the worship of God can continue in our hearts and in our homes.
Although we can't hold services, our Ministry Team are recording services and providing service sheets so that you can follow a service on line at a time to suit you when you have peace and quiet. We also have some resources, including suggested home worship services and prayers for the outbreak.
You will find all this on our 'Virtual Vicar' page on the Benefice website.
For information about other ways to join in with Sunday worship from your home please visit the Diocese of St Albans website
First Sunday of the month: Parish Communion at 11 am
This is a traditional communion service.
2nd Sunday of the month: Evensong at 6 pm
This is a reflective service often led by our old friend, lay reader, Roy Pinnock
3rd Sunday of the month: Social Sunday at 11 am This morning gathering is aimed at anyone who would like to join the PCC for an hour or so to have coffee, have a chat, get to know their neighbours in the village and generally enjoy some company. There will be a quiet space for those who would like to have a period of reflection. We welcome everyone of all faiths or none to come and enjoy the beauty of our lovely parish church.
4th Sunday of the month: Family Service at 11 am
This is a relaxed service often with a lively theme (recently Teddy Bear’s picnic, Kings and Queens or Harry Potter) when families can come together, introduce their children to worship and enjoy our historic church. We usually have refreshments after the service so that we can catch up with regular visitors or get to know new families. We welcome all ages to this service which majors on friendliness and sense of community.
5th Sundays are usually United Benefice Services which rotate around the three churches in the Benefice of Silsoe, Flitton and Pulloxhill
