31 July 2022

please remember to keep the last five minutes before the services, and especially the time during the administration of Holy Communion, for quiet prayer and reflection (a bell will be rung before the main service at Sherburn)

Welcome to you all today as the congregations from all our churches come together in worship, and congratulations to all the newly-appointed churchwardens who will be admitted during our Benefices Eucharist.  And a special welcome to Kaia Harper Bradley being baptised later at Sherburn and to all her family and friends.

August:  as is customary during August, most things at Sherburn take a rest, so:  NO Sunday evening services, Wednesday midweek service, Sunday School, Baptism Preparation, bell ringing practice, choir practices, or Chat-a-Cake (next is 8 September). 

However, Morning & Evening Prayer at Sherburn, Wednesday morning Eucharists (apart from 17 August) at Micklefield, and bell ringing practices at Aberford WILL continue. Everything back to normal from Thursday 1 September.
