Alleluia! Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed!  Alleluia


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)

Following the sad death on Friday of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, a Condolence Book is available in Sherburn church.

Welcome to our services today. Sherburn services continue to be streamed on Sherburn church Facebook page & WhatsApp.

Thank you to all who helped with the churchyard tidy-up at Micklefield yesterday, and with the Easter Trail in church over the past week.

Sherburn Giving: PLEASE consider joining The Parish Giving Scheme if you can; see letters & leaflets for full details.

Weekday Morning Prayer & Evening Prayer: led by Phil.  Morning Prayer will ONLY be on Thursdays, 9.30am, at Sherburn, as we come out of lockdown and other commitments take over.  Evening Prayer daily at 5.15pm, Tuesdays to Fridays, at Sherburn on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and at SAXTON on Thursdays..

Sunday evening services at 6.30pm at Sherburn will revert nearly to 'normal' from the beginning of May, ie Healing Eucharist on the First Sunday of the month (as the First Sunday Service returns in the morning), and Evening Prayer on (most of) the other evenings.  Compline has proved very popular, so the intention is to have a service of Compline once a month, probably on the Third Sunday.  Services at all the other churches are now more or less back to 'normal', though there will be an exception on 4 July, when Phil will be priested at Sherburn at 11.00am.  This will be a Benefices service so that everyone can attend.  Caroline, meanwhile, will be ordained Deacon in York Minster on Saturday 26 June, at 4.30pm, but we are still awaiting more information.

Sherburn Lent collections, for USPG:  collecting boxes (or any donations, marked USPG) to be returned asap please.

Micklefield Lent Giving: please bring back the jars of money collected during Lent to support WaterAid.
