WoT’s Going On… Friday 27.03.2020

Message from the Vicars:


Church continues by Virtual Services, and the Church in the Community

We are camped out in the vicarage and many people in Walton are working from home and some are doing home school simultaneously. Well done. Keep it up. We are doing well. We are praying for hope, faith and peace for all of you at this time. God is closer than we think. Do continue to meet together virtually where you can.
Blessings Jonny and Cathy




Meanwhile church is still happening! 


Sunday services
•    This Sunday would have been a joint service at St Mary’s. The service will be led from the Vicarage and will go live at 8.00 am however perhaps we can all be watching together at 10.00 am. If you open up the service link and watch it in YouTube it allows you to comment. It would be great to hear from you as you are watching!
•    Sunday evening, at the later time of 7.30 pm we’re going to host Evening Praise via Zoom. A simple service with a sermon looking at 1 John 1 “Living in anxious times as God’s beloved” a discussion and perhaps even some music. Again, email [email protected] if you would like to join. Zoom is a really great way of connecting lots of people in a virtual meeting place. You’ll notice its a tool we will be making good use of over the coming weeks!
