WELCOME TO THE PARISH OF SOUTH SHOEBURY

A warm welcome awaits you at either St Andrew's

or St Peter's churches in Shoeburyness

Gethsemane Garden. 

 

Over the past few years, Mary Fane has created an Easter Garden at St Peter’s, which takes us through from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday. If you have seen it you will know that it changes from the darkness of death to a new morning, full of flowers and an open tomb. Since we can't use St Peter’s this year, Mary has created a Garden in her own home. A place of prayer, retreat, worship and reflection. 

 

Thank you Mary for sharing these photos with us.

 

If you are inspired to make your own Easter Garden, send a photo to Louise (revlwilliams@aol.com) or Debs (mjdebs@hotmail.com) and we will include them on the website. 

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

 

As a Parish we are mindful of the potential concerns associated with the Coronavirus. We will continue to follow guidance from the Government and the Diocese. 

 

With this in mind we have sadly had to close the churches for the moment. 

 

Let me encourage you to keep saying your prayers and reading the Bible on your own at home. I know that isn't always easy. If you have a smartphone there is an App provided by the Church of England which has the complete services of Morning and Evening Prayer, and Night Prayer for every day of the week. The Church of England website also has links to various resources and to churches which live stream their services. (Tho' how that will work I have no idea!) 

 

There is a service on Radio 4 at 8.10am on Sundays and you probably know better than I do when Songs of Praise is on! 

 

Do keep in touch with one another. And, please let me know if you contract the Coronavirus, (or believe you have). It is important that we keep track of these things. 

 

Lisa Thomas has offered to pick up shopping if any of you are having to stay indoors. Her number is 07825 329665. If any of you would like to offer your services for that, please give her a call. 

 

We have no way of knowing what lies ahead or for how long this will be. Whatever we do, or don't do in terms of public worship, let me assert very clearly that Good Friday and Easter Day remain true and at the heart of our faith. Easter will not be cancelled... but we may have to celebrate it in new and more individual ways. 

 

God bless you and lots of love,
