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.

Regular services are held in each of the 3 Churches every month and members of the congregation are encouraged to attend each others services if there is not a suitable service or time for them at their own Church. Details of the usual  pattern and  format of  the services at each Church, together with more information and any last minute changes can be found by clicking on the appropriate button below:

Coming to Communion

Sometimes people are put off coming to a communion service because they are not confirmed; however all are welcome to come forward for a blessing, even if they are not confirmed – usually people let the minister know this by bringing their service sheet or book with them in their hands so that the priest knows they would like a blessing.

A blessing is when God is asked to come and be present on and in a person through the action of his Spirit. Children are also welcome to come and receive a blessing.

We welcome all those who are accepted in full membership
of their own churches to receive Holy Communion

Home Communion

If you are unable to get out and would like Home Communion, it may be possible for your local Churchwarden to arrange it.  Please contact the appropriate Churchwarden.
